How climate change affects American Bald Eagles
Capturing the impact as an art photographer of our deteriorating world around us can be, unfortunately, easily see through our bald eagle images. We aim to preserve this magnificent bird by freezing its iconic features and movements through photography. We hold on to their presence with our art to share their beauty with the world. The numbers of this national bird have declined drastically over the last century, mainly due to pesticides and hunting. Though it has been long since removed from the endangered list, climate change offers new risks.
Our patriotic eagle photos show their strength and endurance of the American spirit. During the year, bald eagles will migrate for breeding. However, due to global warming, their food sources are affected. The heat has also been threatening their ability to reproduce. The storm winds are also a danger to their nests and also babies. This means a reduction of population and also a definite decrease in inspiring bald eagle art in which we passionately love.
Characteristics of Bald Eagles
With feather-free legs and also talons to match, the creatures in our bald eagle photos are fully equipped to capture their prey from above. They pierce the vital areas of prey with its back toe while the front toes hold the pursued animal—the eagle’s lunch. We focus on their raw and graceful movements in our photos of eagles.
Rather large in size, the eagle spans out a body length of 28 to 40 inches. On average boasts a wingspan of 5 to 7 feet or so. The female bald eagle is known to be 25 percent larger than the males.
One of the things I enjoy so much is taking bald eagle photos. They are mainly found in North America with a large population of them in Alaska. The bald eagle’s beak, feet, and also irises are bright yellow. The legs of this beautiful bird are feather-free, and the toes are short and so powerful with large talons. All eagle images in our collection detail their natural movements. The highly developed talon of the hind toe is used to pierce the vital areas of prey while it is held immobile by the front toes. The beak on this bird is large and also hooked, with a yellow cere. You can vividly see their characteristics and details in our videos and photos of eagles.
Their population in Alaska is staggering. The bald eagle rightfully represents the US with its strive to be the best. We capture their strength and also power in our images of eagles. The eagle is not only first to its prey, but it also builds the largest nests on the entire continent.
Not actually bald, they have brown and white feathers on their head and also the tail. They boast a large and also hooked beak which matches the color of its feet, and irises—a hypnotizing, bright yellow. Enjoy our images of bald eagles and experience their amazing power in their natural habitat. Our images of eagles are perfect for anyone who admires these beautiful creatures.
Symbolism in America
The Bald Eagle is a well-known figure in American society. Not only as a majestic part of the North American ecosystem but also as a symbol of our nation. On June 20, 1782, this bird was elected as the emblem of the United States of America. Images of eagles symbolize strength, majesty, and longevity. Author, Maude M. Grant said that “during one of the first battles of the Revolution the noise of the struggle awoke the sleeping eagles on the heights and they flew from their nests and circled about over the heads of the fighting men, all the while giving vent to their raucous cries. “They are shrieking for Freedom,” said the patriots.” Today we see Bald Eagle photos on our gold coins, the silver dollar, the half dollar, and the quarter. Additionally, the symbolic bird is seen on the Great Seal of the United States.
The image of Eagles most importantly represents freedom. It inhabits treacherous mountains and lives high above the reach of most other animals or people. However, even this symbol of strength suffered a major decline in its population. Many countries around the world have this beautiful bird on their flag. In the mid-20th century, populations declined due to factors involving the excessive use of DDT, a now-banned pesticide. DDT contributed to the thinning of eggshells by reducing calcium metabolism, making them virtually sterile. DDT accumulated going up the food chain through bio-magnification, getting more concentrated in carnivores like eagles.
Ultimately, eagles were unable to lay healthy eggs and maintain their population numbers. It was declared an endangered species in the U.S. in 1967. It wasn’t until 1972 that DDT was banned in the United States, largely due to its interference in bird populations. Eagle populations bounced back after the ban and in 1995 they were no longer considered “endangered”.
Meaning in Native American Culture
While Americans now value them, Native Americans held great respect for them much before European settlers arrived. Eagle art have decorated many Native American cultures and still hold their significance. Their feathers are part of religious and spiritual ceremonies, in fans, bustles, and headdresses. They themselves are considered spiritual messengers between gods and humans by some. Lastly, pow wow dancers also incorporate eagle claws in their regalia as well. To date, they are revered by tribes for their strength, boldness, and valor. Eagle art have been powerful symbols for centuries, which is fitting considering the nature of these creatures.
Where Do Bald Eagles Live?
From early on, juvenile eagle photos can help tell a story through snapshots of the bird’s journey to adulthood. Our American bald eagle photos tell their story.
Following them from an early age, Eagle images can help place even the smallest details about their day-to-day life. From their diet, consisting of fish and also preying on small birds to their mating habits. We captured their movements in a short film when taking photographs of eagles.
Like humans and also penguins, eagle images are able to capture their monogamy. They are known to mate for life. However, in time, they’re also known to move on. If one member of the couple dies, the survivor will choose a new mate. You can see how they interact with each other in our images of eagles.
With a life span of around 20 years, eagles know how to survive—and also to do it alone. Normally, they tend to choose remote areas to set up their nests away from human activity. I have captured newborns, male, and also female eagle pics during my Alaskan visit.
Fortunately, the numbers have increased and their population has since recovered. I’m so honored to take photographs of eagles. On July 12th, 1995, the national bird found peace again with its removal from the list of endangered species. It was then removed from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife in the Lower 48 States on June 28, 2007.
What Do They Eat?
For the most part, the bald eagle’s diet consists of fish, but it also preys on small birds. Eagles are known to mate for life. However, if one member dies, the survivor will choose a new one. They have a life span of approximately 20 years. The bald eagle is usually quite sensitive to human activity. It’s evident while nesting and found most commonly in areas with minimal human disturbance.
As a National bird and also the national animal of the United States of America, the bald eagle appears on its seal. In the late 20th century it was on the brink of annihilation in the United States. Populations have since recovered. The species was removed from the U.S. government‘s list of endangered species on July 12, 1995, and transferred to the list of threatened species. It was removed from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife in the Lower 48 States on June 28, 2007.
