Where They Live
From early on, juvenile bald eagle pictures can help tell a story through snapshots of the bird’s journey to adulthood.
Following the birds from an early age, Bald Eagle photography can help place even the smallest of details about their day-to-day life. From their diet, which consists of fish and also preying on small birds to their mating habits.
Like humans and also penguins, bald eagle images have been able to capture the monogamy of the birds. 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 one to mate with.
A life span of around 20 years, the bald eagle knows how to survive—and also to do it alone. Normally, these birds tend to choose remote areas to set up their nests away from human activity. I have captured newborns, male, and also female bald eagle pictures during my Alaskan visit.
Fortunately, the numbers have increased and the animal’s population has since recovered. Which I am so honored to take pictures of bald 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 They Eat
For the most part, the bald eagle’s diet consists of fish, but it also preys on small birds. Bald 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.

My Advice over the Years: How to take better photos of bald eagles.
Especially as a nature photographer, getting a close-up to any animal—but especially the solo-traveler, the American bald eagle—can be quite difficult.
However, when the flock is rather huge, the individual eagles doesn’t feel quite threatened by the presence of humans. Which also makes for some great bald eagle pictures.
I would definitely advise carrying a lens with a more extended reach—for example, the 400mm or also the 600mm—if you want crisp details in your bald eagle images.
When taking eagle images, these lenses have always worked for me above all.
To get multiple bald eagle pictures in one go, get as close as possible without disturbing them by also staying in one spot for a long time. This can help the bird get used to your presence, which can also be a great time to study their habits and mannerisms.

How climate change affects American Bald Eagles
Capturing the impact of our deteriorating world around us can be, unfortunately, easily see through our American bald eagle images.
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.
During the year, bald eagles will migrate breeding. However, due to global warming, their food sources have been affected. The heat has also been threatening their ability to reproduce.
The storm winds have also been proved as a danger to their nests and baby birds. This means a reduction of population and a definite decrease in inspiring bald eagle pictures.

While working as a fashion photographer, I pay the models.
