The Eagles are one of the oldest species of birds that existed even during the ancient periods. They are very closely related to human and some of them have been very friendly to man. However, Eagles belongs to the family of the birds. It is said that there are sixty one species of eagles that can be found in Eurasia and Africa. Out of these sixty one species two of them are very popular and well known to many people today. These two bird species are mainly found in parts of the United States and Canada. These are the Golden Eagle and the Bald Head Eagle. However there are nine more that can be found in Central and South America and another three of them in Australia. Combining all these a factors there are also many other kinds of species that are found in the Philippines. The Bald head eagle is the National Emblem of United States. The Eagles are considered very sacred and spiritual. I have heard people saying the Eagles are a symbol of good luck as well. This could be one of the reasons why people in ancient kept eagles as pets as well.

The Eagles are one the largest prey birds and they feed on the flesh of other birds, snakes, reptiles and a few small animals. They have a heavy head and a beak. Even some of the eagles like the Booted Eagles have large wings. With the help of these large wings eagles can fly very fast. Most of the them fly at a very high altitude as well. However, depending on the location the eagles can differ in size. The south Nicobar serpent eagle is small and weighs only about five hundred. These birds are quite strong and have a sharp beak. They can tear any flesh with the help of their beak as it hooks in the front. Also, it has very strong muscular legs and powerful talons. We would see in some of the movies that even eagles attack their prey with their legs as well. Another, the most important factor is that eagles have very keen and clear eyesight. It can easily spot its prey from a very long distance. One of the key factors for its keen eyesight is its pupil. It has a very large pupil and it ensures minimal diffraction of the incoming light.

Since these eagles are quite huge it builds large nests and are generally called eyries. Most of these nests are built in tall trees or on high cliffs. Most of the species lay two eggs at a time. However, the older or the larger of these two chicks kill the other while it rests in the same nest. Quite different from the other animals the females are considered more dominant than the males and the parent bird does not prevent the killing of the other chick by the dominant. It is very interesting spending some time browsing, I do the same during my free time on my Cheap Internet powered by Broadband Providers. One of the species that I like is the Bald head Eagle. The Bald Head Eagle has a white color bald head as its name suggests. Its body is quite huge and brown in color. The color of its legs and bill is bright yellow. With all these features it looks majestic and given a chance, you can keep looking at it for hours together. These species generally live near the lakes, reservoirs, rivers marshes and coasts. These are most commonly found in places like Alaska and the Pacific North West.
