Bald Eagle

The Bald Eagle is a bird of prey found in North America, most recognizable as the national bird of the United States.

The species was on the brink of extinction in the United States at the end of the 20th century, but now has a stable population.

The Bald Eagle's natural range covers most of North America, including most of Canada, all of the continental United States, and northern Mexico.

Bald Eagles are powerful fliers, and also soar on thermal convection currents. In the wild, Bald Eagles can live about 20-30 years, and have a maximum life span of approximately 50 years. They generally live longer in captivity, up to 60 years old.
