The most recognizable eagle in North America is the bald eagle. A large powerful predatory bird, bald eagles are a type of fish eagle. They fly low over the water and snatch up fish with their powerful talons. Adult bald eagles are dark brown to black. They have a distinctive white head and a sweeping wingspan of 2.5 m. They live all across North America, especially near wetlands and coasts. Bald eagles were once endangered throughout most of their range but are making a comeback.
