Bald eagles can live up to 39 years in the wild and 50 years in captivity.
The Constitutional Congress declared the bald eagle the U.S. national symbol in 1782.
The bird’s name is derived from an Old English word “balde,” which meant “white,” referring to the color of its head feathers.
Flight speed has been measured at up to 44 mph.
Bald eagles once were common in the United States, but by the 1960s their numbers had declined to fewer than 500 nesting pairs.
Nearly 9,800 nesting pairs now inhabit the United States due to protective measures.
