Eagle FAQs

  • How big are eagles? Eagles are one of the largest birds in North America. Their wingspan is about six feet wide and they weigh anywhere from 7 to 14 pounds. Their body is about 34 to 43 inches long. Female eagles weigh more than males.
  • What do eagles eat? Eagles mainly eat fish from coastal and freshwater. Common fish they eat are herring, salmon, herring, and shad. If fish are not available, eagles will eat other small animals, like other birds and mammals. Young eagles are fed by their parents.

  • How do eagles catch fish? Eagles find a perch near water to look for fish or they fly above the water. Once they see a fish they can catch, they fly down to the water and use their feet and talons to catch it.
  • How many eggs does an eagle lay? A female eagle typically lays two eggs each breeding season. The eggs are an off white color. It takes just over a month for the eggs to hatch.

When the eggs hatch, about a month later, the eagles are covered in light gray down.

How To Identify An Eagle

Eagles are a large bird of prey that lives on the land near bodies of water. There are a few types of eagles, and the most well known is the Bald eagle. Some of the other types of eagles are Golden eagles, Crowned eagles, Harpy eagles, and Steller’s sea eagles.

Location

Location is key when identifying birds. Eagles live all over North America including Canada and the United States. In the spring and summer, eagles nest in the northern United States and Canada. In the fall and winter, eagles migrate to the southern United States where their water and food sources will not be frozen.

Size and Appearance

Identifying an eagle is quite simple. Their head and tail are white, and their body and wings are dark brown. Eagles have a yellow, hooked beak. They are very large birds with a six-foot-wide wingspan. Eagles weigh anywhere from 7 to 14 pounds. They are 27 to 37 inches in length. Female eagles are larger than male eagles.

Vocalizations

Eagles do not make a lot of sounds or noise in general. They sometimes make a weak sounding call of high pitched noises. Female eagles make a high pitched sound when they are looking for a partner to mate with.

Behavior

Eagles are very graceful fliers, and they tend to fly and soar high in the sky. They live in forests near bodies of water where they can catch fish to eat. You can find eagles near lakes, coasts, rivers, and reservoirs in North America. Eagles spend their time flying around, and sometimes they even fly hundreds of miles in just a day.
