The name bald eagle actually derives from an older meaning of the word, "white headed". They are not actually bald. The adult bald eagle has a white head and tail but the majority of its body is brown. The female looks very similar to the male but they are 25 percent larger than males. They have a very large and hooked beak, which is very useful when grabbing their pray. Younger bald eagles have feathers that are also brown. They are carnivores who eat many different types of prey. Not only do they hunt for their food, but they also like to scavenge and steal other animals food.

An unexpected moment is recorded on camera as three osprey are sitting in a nest in Bremen, Maine. Two bald eagles swoop down on them and end up demolishing one of the three osprey. Poor bird! The other two osprey's are very lucky to have survived. One flies away while the other hides in their nest, it is very frightened and is too afraid to move. These osprey's were not expecting this. It all happened so fast!

      Saw this in Alaska when two males went at it and as the spiraled into Glacier Bay talons locked. The victor swam to the shore nearly exhausted but in about 15 min he flew off. What the fight was about who knew but fight to the death was amazing to watch.
