American Bald Eagles

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

American bald eagles are featured in many photo collections and galleries of pictures online. Before the 18th century, these birds were common throughout North America. Early settlers began to hunt them and compete for food. These predators were considered to be pests and the government encouraged their killing. Only by the 1930ís, people became aware of the population decline of these birds. Since 1940, killing this species has been illegal, but at the same time these birds began to suffer from DDT, lead and other agents widely used in agriculture. Today, the population of these birds has fully recovered. American bald eagles are featured in many photo collections and galleries of pictures online.

These birds have a distinctive white head and tail mark when adults. A mature bird is a bird that has reached the age of 4 to 5 years old. Younger birds are solid brown, and do not look like adults. There are two subspecies of these birds, the southern, and the northern types. This species feeds on mammals and fish. About 80 percent of the bird population is concentrated in the state of Florida. At present, the Chesapeake Bay is reported to have one of the highest concentrations of the species in the United States. American bald eagles are featured in many photo collections and galleries of pictures online.
