This sea eagle gets both its common and scientific names from the distinctive appearance of the adult's head. Bald is derived from the word piebald, and refers to the white head and tail feathers and their contrast with the darker body. The scientific name (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is derived from Haliaeetus, New Latin for "sea eagle".

The Bald Eagle prefers habitats near seacoasts, rivers, large lakes, and other large bodies of open water with an abundance of fish. They are extremely sensitive to human activity, and occur most commonly in areas free of human disturbance.

The Bald Eagle is a powerful flier,and soars on thermal convection currents. It reaches speeds of 3544 mph when gliding and flapping, and about 30mph while carrying fish.
