This winter animal scene near Beaver Cove has several bald eagles perched in a tree. The bald eagles are both adults and juveniles. The juveniles are still completely covered in brown feathers. The beautiful markings of the adults are their distinct white heads and tail feathers. The male and females have the same coloration but the females can be as much as 25% larger than the males.

This bird of prey animal is the national bird and proud symbol of the United States of America. Unfortunately in the late 20th century, they became close to extinction in the United States but they flourished in Canada and Alaska. Since 2007, they have been removed from the threatened list.

The bald eagle is usually nest in older trees and near large bodies of water for the food supply. They can swoop down and snatch the fish from the water with its large talons.

The bald eagle is a large bird that matures at around four to five years old and can live up to thirty years.
