Animal of the day – 03/17/2014 – The Bald Eagle

The animal of the day is the Bald Eagle. (Did you know: While bald eagles are well known hunters of fish, small mammals and other birds, they also will steal food straight from other birds [osprey’s especially], and will happily eat carrion. Shoot, they’ll even steal a fish from a fisher-human.

Their nests are the largest of all North American birds (measuring up to almost 10 feet in diameter and weighing up to a ton!

And, remember that bald eagle females are bigger than the males! And darn protective of their young.
