Soaring high

Once a familiar sight in the Western U.S., the golden eagle is losing its habitat. Adopted as the national emblem of the United States in 1782, the bald eagle appears on every dollar bill, but is only beginning to re-appear in the wild. All eagles have good vision and can spot prey from far away.

What's for dinner?

Bald eagles primarily eat fish; golden eagles eat small animals.
