Bald eagles are good swimmers. If a bald eagle latches on to a fish too heavy to lift out of the water, it may swim a great distance to shore, dragging the fish onto land to eat it.
When migrating, they can reach gliding speeds of up to 75 miles per hour. And they can fly up to 10,000 feet.
Bald eagles were once endangered, but due to a major conservation effort across the U.S. they were removed from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife in 2007.
