Where Eagles Fly

October 19, 2017

 

Having lived in rural western New York and Pennsylvania, eagle sightings, though rare, were not unheard of.  However, visiting Alaska the past several summers, and now as a resident, eagle sightings are a much more regular occurrence.  They are still a wonder to me though, and I marvel at these spectacular birds every time I get the chance to see them.

 

As with most things, I am eager to learn more about these birds and in my spare time have been brushing up on them.  Did you know?….

 

o   The bald eagle’s range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States, and down into northern Mexico.

 

o   They are typically found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.

 

o   The bald eagle is an opportunistic feeder which subsists mainly on fish, which it swoops down and snatches from the water with its talons. (an awe-inspiring sight, I might add!)

 

o   Their typical wingspan is between 6 – 7½ ft.

 

o   They reach sexual maturity at the age of four to five years.

 

o   Both sexes are identical in plumage, mainly brown with a white head and tail.  Juveniles are a mottled brown and white.

 

o   Females are about 25 percent larger than males.

 

o   Bald eagles mate for life. However, if one member of a pair dies or disappears, the survivor will choose a new mate

 

o   They build the largest nest of any North American bird and the largest tree nests ever recorded for any animal species - up to 13 ft. deep, 8.2 ft. wide, and over a ton in weight.

 

o   Average lifespan in the wild is around 20 years, with the oldest confirmed one having been 38 years old

 

o   The bald eagle is Both the national bird and national animal of the United States of America.
