Bald Eagle

An almost white headed bald eagle. The Hancock Wildlife Foundation site states “Bald Eagles are not bald at all, but have a white head. Hundreds of years ago the English word for WHITE was BALDE and the word piebalde meant mottled with white, so the eagles with white heads were called Balde Eagles.” I use this quote to mention the Hancock Wildlife Foundation so if you are interested in bald eagles Google their name to arrive at their site where they have live webcams of an eagle’s nests.
