Bald eagle information
I'm going to be writing about eagles an how they nest and all sorts of different things about eagles.
I have learened that the bald eagle has a scientific name and that they have a classification name too and the scientific name is Haliaeetus leucocepholus and the classification name is Phylum;choradat, class;aves, order;Falconi fomes, Family;Accipitriae, Genus;Haliaeetus.
I have learned that the eagles feathers trap in air to insulate from the rain.The eyesight of the bald eagle is five to six times sharper that a humans eye and they can see fish from several hundred feet above the water.
Did you know that the talons on the bald eagle can hang on to a larger fish while flying to the nest and the talons are 2 inch sharp talons.
The bald eagles will migrate and they will head south because when the water freezes up they will migrate to the south but when it is winter where they are they will migrate to the north again.
The bald eagles nest is in a tree and it has lots of sticks and dryed up grass.The strong thick branches will hold up the nest.
The bald eagles were on the endangered species list because of DDT but now they are not on the endangered species list anymore. They are on the watch list now because we want to know how many eagles we have in the United States.
