I didn’t realize this was an actual holiday, but found out during the course of the Ultimate Blog Challenge that it is indeed a holiday celebrated on January 26th! I absolutely love birds…eagles, hawks, our pet cockatiels…I just love them. Here are a few quick facts about bald eagles:
- They have 7,000 feathers
- Their head is not bald
- It’s scientific name is Haliaeetus leucocephalus
- They can fly at altitudes of 10,000 feet
- They weigh between 10 and 14 pounds
- Their wingspan ranges between 72 and 90 inches
