The Bald Eagle is a bird of prey found in North America and is both the national bird and national animal of the United States of America. It has been the national emblem since 1782. Its range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States, and northern Mexico. The bald eagle usually goes after other creatures’ catches instead of fishing on its own. Bald Eagles can live a long time with life span between 28 to 36 years.
