i have personally never seen a bald eagle in the wild. i have seen a young red headed eagle at a preserve before. did you guys know that their head is red before the mature at the age of 3-4?? it is a reason why they nearly became extinct. they were presumed to be hawks while young. but we were on a history hunt and saw 3 eagles playing around some trees. to our amazement, they did a fly over in single file formation, then played a bit right above our heads!! we were amazed.
