Bald Eagle – Canada

Bald eagles are not really bald; the name comes from an older meaning of the word – “white headed”.
The largest eagles are in Alaska. Large females may weigh more than 7 kg (15 lb) and have a wing span of 2.44 m (8 ft 0 in).
The average lifespan of bald eagles in the wild is about 20 years.

There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud.

    1. I’ve never seen one in the wild that was very close, but sometimes I see them in a tree with other birds that I have seen up close. That clinches the size difference.

      1. Two years ago I saw one in a field near our house, eating something; as I slowed down to get a closer look, it took off and flew right over my car. It was ENORMOUS. It landed in a tree on the far side of the road, so I just sat and watched it for several minutes (before it flew off). Absolutely gorgeous birds!
