My Eagle Photography Experience

I have made multiple expeditions to Alaska to photograph these amazing birds. The large size of these birds really strikes you when they are close to you. I am extremely proud to have them as our National Bird.

My closeup eagle photos in Alaska were all made using a large telephoto lens, which allowed for capturing the extreme detail in their eyes and feathers. I would love to frame and hang every one of them.

Facts About Eagles

The bald eagle (H. leucocephalus) is found across Canada, the United States, and in northern Mexico. In 1978, the U.S. government declared the bald eagle an endangered species and began conservation measures. In 1995, there were an estimated 4,500 nesting pairs in the lower 48 states and by year 2000 the population had increased to more than 6,300 pairs. In 2007, the bald eagle was removed from the U.S. list of endangered and threatened species.

The Majestic American Bald Eagle

The Bald Eagle is the National Bird of the United States and I am proud that it is. It is simply the most majestic and impressive bird in the world. They are huge with a 6 to 7-foot wingspan. I have been fortunate to capture photos of Bald Eagles and felt a sense of pride with every one.

Bald Eagles are found throughout the United States. Almost all of the photos of Eagles I have taken are from Alaska. Although they are quite common there, I enjoy every one that I see flying overhead.

America's National Symbol, the Bald Eagle: Facts and Habitat.

The bald eagle is the national symbol of America and one of the most recognizable animals in the world. Its bold white head and tail feathers, distinctive yellow beak, and fierce nature make it a powerful symbol. The bald eagle is also known as "the bird of America" and has been a prominent figure throughout our history. It's important to know about this animal and its habitat. Here are some facts you may not know about America's national symbol, the bald eagle.

The Bald Eagle's Habitat and Size

The bald eagle's habitat is typically near rivers, lakes, coasts, and other bodies of water. The bald eagle is most commonly found in coastal regions of the United States. They are also found in the Great Lakes region.

The bald eagle can live up to 25 years in captivity but only 12-15 in its natural habitat in North America.

Bald eagles typically weigh 10-14 pounds with a wingspan of up to 8 feet wide when fully extended.

The average height of a mature adult is 30 inches tall from ground level to its back when standing straight up, but can be taller depending on habitats.

The Bald Eagle's Diet

The bald eagle's diet consists of fish, other birds, small mammals, and carrion. Bald eagles are opportunistic feeders which means they will take advantage of any food source that is available. When fish are abundant, bald eagles will eat mostly fish. Other common foods include waterfowl, bats, rabbits, squirrels, snakes, frogs, large insects, and other birds. They have even been known to eat carrion when nothing else is available.

The Bald Eagle's Predators

The bald eagle's predators are typically found in its natural habitat. Eagles are at the top of the food chain, so they have no natural predators. They are perched to eat their prey. The bald eagle is an apex predator with no major threats to its survival.

The Bald Eagle and America

The bald eagle was adopted as the national emblem for England by King Charles II in 1677. In 1782, Congress made it America’s national emblem with the likeness that we know today.

The bald eagle is our national symbol, and it also has great symbolism in America. The bald eagle was chosen to represent the United States by the Continental Congress in 1782. At that time, Benjamin Franklin said it was "a bird of bad moral character" but George Washington disagreed and noted that the bird's size and power were more important qualities.
