American bald eagle facts can be found on endangered bird sites with infomation on the chick and photos. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the population of these birds declined drastically through a number of reasons. They competed with humans for food and early settlers killed them in large numbers. Most suitable remote habitats were destroyed by human encroachment. These birds prefer to live and nest in isolated quiet places; when disturbed they easily leave their nests and even their young.

chick, photos

The scientific name of the bird means “white-headed.” The species is distinguished by a white head and tail. Adult males and females are identical in color. This is a rare case, when females are considerably larger than males. Young birds are those who have not reached sexual maturity and are younger than 4 or 5 years old. They are almost solid brown without white markings on the head and tail. A beak and talons of the youth are black. Young birds learn to fly at three months and leave the nest at the age of four months. The birds of this species generally mate for life and tend to return to the same nest over and over. Females lay one to three eggs at a time. The incubation period for the eggs is 35 days. American bald eagle facts can be found on endangered bird sites with infomation on the chick and photos.
