  • Why it is a bald eagle, but not royal eagle*? The best regards from france.

i've often wondered myself how come they call them bald eagles.

((Ospr3y)) on April 12, 2010

Thank you all! I am sorry for the late reply.

They are called the Bald Eagle because their heads are white and 'bald' used to mean white-haired. Just like Kerry2Kerry's link shows.

We have lots of bald eagles in this area, but I have nowhere near the patience for a shot like this. Well done.

Thanks, Valerio!

Thanks, AustinMN. I didn't really need patience. It was just sitting up in it's nest. It's injured or an imprint, so it stays at the Raptor Center.
