The Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is a bird of prey found in North America. It is the national bird and symbol of the United States of America. This sea eagle has two known sub-species and forms a species pair with the White-tailed Eagle. 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.

In the late 20th century the Bald Eagle was on the brink of extirpation in the continental United States, while flourishing in much of Alaska and Canada. Populations recovered and stabilised, so the species was removed from the U.S. federal government's list of endangered species and transferred to the list of threatened species on July 12, 1995, and it was removed from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife in the Lower 48 States on June 28, 2007.

Bald eagles are not actually bald, the name deriving from the older meaning of the word, "white headed".

Hallo Thijs,
Deze lijkt erg veel op de kop die ik een keer gefotografeerd heb in Avifauna. Alleen kijkt deze zeearend nog bozer. Erg mooie opname in prachtige natuurlijke kleuren en uitstekende scherpte.

Hi Thijs,this is a pic perfect for the National Geographic magazine.What a portrait,what a head position and what a fantastic quality! Impossible to make better,this is an artwork!Thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano.

Bonjour Thijs,
Très beau et expressif portrait très finement détaillé.
En l'absence de précision j'espère qu'il ne s'agit pas d'un animal captif ou apprivoisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
