|White-tailed eagle in flight|
Eagles are large birds of prey that are related to hawks and Old World vultures. Eagles hunt during the day and have very good eyesight. The bald eagle is a large eagle from North America that has a bright white head and tail. It is the national bird of the United States and usually eats fish.
Sometimes, "eagle" can just mean any large hawk; as a group, eagles are not closely related to one another.
