The Bald Eagle was just recently removed
from the United States of America's Endangered Species list,
and its Status reduced to 'Lower Risk'. Half the total population
of 100,000 can be found in Alaska. The Bald Eagle's name comes
from the white feathers on their otherwise brown body. The white
feathers do not develop in the Bald Eagle until
the bird is 2 to 3 years old, before sexual maturity.
