A bird of prey found throughout North America, the bald eagle is actually a sea eagle, meaning it lives close to rivers, lakes, and tidewaters, and its diet consists almost entirely of water-dwelling animals. It is the largest eagle native to North America.

    History:

    Currently classified as least concern by the IUCN, the bald eagle is thought to be the most populated of the eight species of sea eagle. However, this was not always the case. In the mid-20th century the bald eagle population dropped from 500,000 nesting pairs to as low as 400 due to a multitude of reasons, the most prevalent being pesticides. However, extensive restoration efforts allowed the bald eagle to be declassified as an endangered species in 1995, and once again declassified as a threatened species in 2007.

    • Recommended Age: 18 months and up
    • Size in cm: 18 L x
    Present Status Bald Eagles live largely in the wild. However, by obtaining the proper permits, private citizens and wildlife refuges may harbor these birds.
