American Bald Eagle A vertical image of an American Bald Eagle and it's reflection while drinking water on the surface of the icy ground near Kachemak Bay, Alaska. The Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus, Pygargue a Tete Blanche) is a bird of prey found in North America. It is the national bird and symbol of the United States of America.
A heated birdbath makes drinking water available even in freezing temperatures. Photo and tip courtesy Carole Brown of Ecosystem Gardening. Learn more about attracting birds in winter here: http://www.landscapingnetwork.com/plants/winter-interest.html
