Unmistakable in its adult plumage, with its white head and tail, though younger birds are often mistaken for Golden Eagles. The head and tail become pure white in the bird’s 5th year. While the Bald Eagle is generally a bit heavier, only the Golden Eagle has broader average wingspan than this species 6-8 feet. Females are about 25% larger than males, and the size difference is readily apparent when a pair perch together. The Bald Eagle is an apex predator, and while it hunts on its own, it also scavenges, stealing fish from Osprey or mammals from foxes and coyotes. The painting depicts a mated pair that lived near Buckhorn Lake, north of Peterborough, Ontario.
