Bald eagles get their name from their colouring: while the rest of an adult bird is brown in colour, the head is white. They have bright yellow eyes, grasping toes and their long talons are sharp and deadly.
They are able to live anywhere in North America where there are suitable nest trees, roosts and prey species. They also require a source of open water such as a lake or ocean nearby.
