American Bald Eagle Eagle

chicks, bird

This is a long-lived, fierce-looking, powerful bird, a national symbol of the United States. The birds reach sexual maturity and acquire the appearance of adults when four or five years old. Not all young birds survive their first winter, especially in northern areas where water sources freeze over and these predators are short of food. Northern populations have to migrate to warmer areas or to large rivers that remain open. Adults are identified by their white head and tail, and a solid brown body. The birds have a large, curved, yellow bill. Females are considerably larger than males in this species. Breeding pairs of these birds mate for life and care for the young together. An american bald eagle eagle is a protected bird; the chicks are usually more vulnerable than the adult bird.
