As with other eagle species, Bald Eagles are known for their excellent eyesight. While in flight, eagles are capable of seeing fish in the water from several hundred feet above.
When perched, eagles spend a good amount of time grooming themselves. From a special oil gland above its tail, an eagle will extract oil and smooth it over its outer feathers to keep them waterproof.
In addition to grooming, Bald Eagles will also occasionally bathe; they are capable of floating in water by moving their wings in a “rowing” motion.
