Bald Eagle -- An eagle's eye is almost as large as a human's, but its sharpness is at least four times that of a person with perfect vision. -- I saw one recently, they are just coming back to this area. Breathtaking sight to see.

Pensive and captivating. Though their numbers have grown in much of their range, bald eagles remain most abundant in Alaska and Canada. These powerful birds of prey use their talons to fish, but they get many of their meals by scavenging carrion or stealing the kills of other animals.
