Other Information

The bald eagle is so named for its conspicuous white head. An adult bald eagle doesn't sport its white head (and tail) until about 5 years of age. Until then it is often mistaken for a Golden Eagle. Adults have wing spans of about 7 feet and normally weigh about 10 to 14 pounds. Females are larger than males. Nesting begins in April and normally two chicks are born.

Alaska has a bounty on bald eagles.
