Clearly recognised by its white head, brown body and hooked yellow beak, the Bald Eagle has been the national emblem of the United States of America since 1782.
With a 2m (7ft.) wing span, a weight of 3-7 kg (7-15 lb) and an overall size of 71-96 cm (28-38 in) the Bald Eagle is one of the largest raptors in the world.
Living near a constant source of water, Bald Eagles feast on fish, ducks, snakes and turtles. The will also eat rabbits, muskrats and dead animals.
Utilising their acute sense of sight and powerful talons Bald Eagles attack their prey by swooping down on them at an angle. They can reach speeds of up to 100 mph when diving.
