A CLOSER LOOK—Bald Eagle

By Kimball Garrett

Originally published in The Western Tanager, Vol. 46 No. 06 March 1980.

Although now quite rare over much of its range, the Bald Eagle is a familiar symbol to red-blooded Americans and birders alike. The striking white head and tail instantly identify the adult, but there exists a confusing array of sub-adult plumages which will be the focus of this month's [March 1980] article.
