Bald Eagle, Squamish, British Columbia, Canada 22

Description : The distinctive white head and tail are not attained until a bird reaches 4 to 6 years of age, consequently immature birds are often confused with golden eagles. Bald eagles are commonly called fish eagles because of the large proportion of fish in their diet which they catch by swooping down and thrusting their feet into the water. Even with powerful feet, sharp talons and textured, slip-resistant feet, bald eagles often miss their slippery prey. In addition to fish, bald eagles prey on ducks, geese and rabbits. Carrion such as spawned-out salmon, is especially important in winter when other food may be scarce.
