Thunder Basin National Grassland Bald Eagle

Raptors are a family of meat eating predators with powerful wings, strong jaws and highly tuned senses. These birds of prey, including hawks, eagles, falcons, vultures, and owls are distinguished by hooked beaks and taloned feet. Generally, female raptors are larger than their male counterparts.

Once near extinction, this magnificent symbol of freedom has recovered and is found near many waterways and lakes, where it is very skilled at fishing. It is also known to steal fish from Ospreys, another fishing raptor and scavenge carrion. Unlike how it is portrayed in movies, the bald eagle actually has a relatively quiet, high pitched whistling or piping call.
