The Bald Eagle

The Bald Eagle, despite its name, isn't bald at all! They're actually covered in brown feathers, except for their striking white heads and tails. These magnificent birds boast a wingspan of over seven feet – that's taller than your dad! They're considered a symbol of freedom and strength in the United States, in part because they're one of the largest birds of prey in North America.
