Bald Eagles

 Over the years, bald eagles have become extinct. They have become extinct because they have been hunted and their environment has been taken away. People began hunting and fishing, taking away bald eagles food. With the reproduction of more people they have had to cut down forests to build homes and other buildings. They have to be the fittest to survive. They have to be able to get their food since most of it is being taken from humans. As more and more bald eagles get killed it causes less and less to be able to reproduce, causing a decrease in their population. Also, a cause in their decreasing population is there egg shells have gotten thinner so they are cracked and broken before the egg is able to hatch. There is not enough space for the bald eagles that are left to live, so they are not only fighting over food but also space to live. But as of 2007 bald eagles are off of the endangered species list because the government is saving them.


  1. I like the picture of the babies(: Very good!! (:

  2. Not to be a party pooper, but the site that you got this from is a bit questionable.
    There is NO author for the article so we don't know who wrote it. Is the author an expert on bald eagles?
    Is he an ornithologist? Who publishes this site? These are all questions you need to think about before you use a source.

    FYI...the Bald Eagle was taken off the Endangered Species list in 2007.

  3. Super exciting that bald eagles are on the rise again. There are many preservation programs throughout the United States that have worked hard to mate birds and keep the gene pool large enough that the species may be able to compete without human assistance.
