A Bald Eagle is an animal that is remarkable. Their most prominent feature, (wingspan), can be up to 5 feet (1.5 meters) wide. They are the national animal of the United States because they were once on the brink of extinction and how it was brought back by conservationists.

Bald Eagles live in North America, Europe, Asia, and northern parts of Africa. Bald Eagles love to eat fish so they hunt near water sources like rivers, lakes, ponds, swamps and even oceans! They also eat other birds like ducks or seagulls but rarely will eat mammals too! Bald Eagles range in colors from white to brown with darker feathers around their head giving them a "bald" look hence their name.
