Grays Harbor Birds — Bald Eagle

General Description: The Bald Eagle dwarfs most birds and as is the case with all raptors, the female is larger than the male. They are from 28 to 37.8 inches tall, with a wing span of just over 80 inches, and they weigh a hefty 10 to 14 pounds for the females and 8 to 10 pounds for the males. The adult bird has a dark brown body and wings with a white head and tail, yellow feet and bill, and pale yellow eyes. The immature birds are dark brown with patches of white, and do not reach full adult plumage until 4 to 6 years of age. They may live as long as 40 years.
