Bald Eagle — Field ID

Size:  31”-37”

Color:  Adult Bald Eagles have white heads and tails, yellow bills and feet, and dark brown wings and bodies. Females are larger than males, and immature Bald Eagles may be larger than adults, owing to longer wing and tail feathers. Immature Bald Eagles— those younger than four years old—are predominantly brown, slowly gaining their distinctive white head and tail as they grow older.
