|Bald Eagle Haliaeetus
|Dezadeash Lake, Yukon,
The Bald Eagle is distributed throughout most of North America. It breeds near water and prefers areas where there are large trees near the water to provide nesting sites and perches.
It feeds on fish both dead and alive and
also feeds on birds, mammals, reptiles, carrion and human
rubbish. The bird in photo 1 is feeding on the carcass of a
Trumpeter Swan Cygnus buccinator.
|There is a map showing the distribution at NatureServe and additional information is available via Avibase.|
