Description

This Bald Eagle can be found out in Lake Bloomington, where he hunts by day to feed his family. His nest resides high in the trees, in which the nest is about the size of a large pizza. At a time, they can carry around three baby birds in the nest or less, in which this one has three. He is carrying a fish home to his family, which he most likely will return out together another for himself. The bald eagle has a wing span bigger than most human's arm span, and happens to be an endangered species as well. They are not allowed to be hunted or killed.

For a long time, the majority view has been to include them with the falcons in the Falconiformes, but some authorities have recognized a separate Accipitriformes.
