Random Fact: Bald Eagles
Young Bald Eagles don’t look ‘bald’; they have mostly brown heads. For the first 4-5 years of their lives, they go through a system of different plumage patterns – in their second year, for example, they have white bellies. They are birds that mate for life, sharing parenting duties, and they can live for around 20 years in the wild. The nest of the Bald Eagle is one of the largest – 2-4 feet deep and 4-5 feet wide. However, one pair of eagles entered the Guinness Book of Records for their nest – 20 feet deep and 9 feet wide, weighing over 2 tons.
