🦅 **The Majestic Bald Eagle**

The Bald Eagle is truly a sight to behold and a must-see attraction when you take our Big Jeep Tours in Bisbee, Arizona. Let's dive into what makes this bird of prey so captivating!

➡️ **Distinctive Features**

* The Bald Eagle stands proud with a height ranging between 28-40 inches, making them one of the largest birds in North America.

* Their wingspan is magnificent, extending from 6 to 7.5 feet.

* The Bald Eagle's most striking feature is its bright, white head and tail, in stark contrast with its dark brown body. This bold coloration is a sure sign of an adult, as juvenile bald eagles sport a mottled brown appearance. 

* Its hooked yellow beak is not just for show. It is a highly effective tool for hunting and feeding.

* Eagle-eyed indeed! 🧐 These birds have extremely keen eyesight, estimated to be 4 to 8 times stronger than that of the average human.

➡️ **Habitat & Behavior**

* Bald Eagles love bodies of water, including rivers, lakes, and coasts. Bisbee, despite being somewhat arid, offers nearby water sources where you're likely to spot them.

* They are excellent flyers and can reach speeds of up to 100 miles per hour when diving to catch their prey! 🦅💨 

* Bald Eagles primarily feed on fish but will also hunt smaller birds and mammals. They are even known to scavenge when the opportunity arises.

* Bald Eagles are monogamous and mate for life. If you're lucky, you might witness their intricate courtship rituals which include an amazing “cartwheel” display.

➡️ **The Bald Eagle & Bisbee**

* Bisbee's varied landscape, offering both high vantage points and nearby water sources, makes it a favorable environment for these magnificent birds. 

* During your Big Jeep Tour, you will be guided to areas where Bald Eagles have been known to roost and hunt. The experience is exhilarating!

➡️ **Conservation**

* Once endangered, Bald Eagles have made a remarkable recovery due to dedicated conservation efforts. 🌍💚
