Bald eagle

The bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus, from Greek hali "sea", aiētos "eagle", leuco "white", cephalos "head") is a bird of prey found in North America. A sea eagle, it has two known subspecies and forms a species pair with the white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla). Its range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States, and northern Mexico. It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.

Bald Eagle

Photography by Madison Stewart This lovely bird is a resident at the Montgomery Bell State Park animal rehabilitation program in Tennessee. If you look closely at the bird, it has a reconstructed beak due to a hunter shooting off it's original one. The bird has adapted fine to this change and is doing well.
