BALD EAGLE APPRECIATION DAY!
We’re so excited to celebrate the amazing symbol of the United States. These amazing raptors are one of our favorite birds! Come learn more about the Bald Eagle!
- Bald eagles habitat range is North America in woodlands, marshes and bodies of water.

- They can grow up to 38″ and weigh up to 14lbs.
- They are listed as least concern.
- They have a wingspan of up to 8 ¼ feet.
- Bald Eagles mate for life. They reinforce their pair bonds with spectacular flights that they do together.
- Bonded pairs build their large nests. Both female and male eagles rear the chicks.
- Bald Eagles have excellent eyesight.

- Bald eagles don’t develop their white head feathers until around the age of 5!
- Bald Eagles have been the National Bird of the U.S. since 1782.
We just love Bald Eagles and think they make a fine national bird! They are so regal. Unfortunately we almost lost these birds to pollution and habitat loss and they were near extinction in the mid 1900s. After much human effort to save them they are now living in almost every state! YAY!!!
