Bald eagles lives near water to hunt for their favorite food - fish. They are found from Alaska down to Mexico.

The bald eagle is the national bird of the United States. The number of bald eagles drastically decreased due to pesticide use, habitat loss, and hunting, and it was placed on the endangered species list in the late 1960s. After measures were taken to protect the bald eagle and other similar species, their numbers rebounded and they were delisted in 2007.

Bald eagles can fly up to speeds of 70 mph and dive up to 99 mph.
