Hello all,

While we're waiting to watch our lovelies begin the nesting season again, here's a video that was sent to me by another eagle lover.

I watched it and I couldn't believe how HUGE the mum eagle was! You can tell her size by the lady's hands touching "Beauty".

I had no idea the eagles were so big; Oh My I thought they were about the size of hawks that you see perch on folks' arms during falconry training.

Is the size of the mum in the video the size of the White Rock "Ma"?

If so, I'm AMAZED. Indeed, these are majestic beings!

Here's the 5 min. video ...

Please share your thoughts re: the size and if that's the size of WR Ma?

Hey Annie and LuvLets! :hello:

Wonderful video LuvLets! Beauty is probably average size for an adult female Bald Eagle. I can't speak specifically of Ma WR, but the female, on average, is 35-37 inches from the top of their heads to the tip of their tails, and their wing spans are around 79-90 inches, while the male is slightly smaller at 30-34 inches and a wing span of 72-85 inches. Average weight is 10-14 pounds. They're HUGE birds! Nodding yes

If you have a rehabilitation facility in your area that has education birds on display, you really should go see them in person. You can't imagine how big and magnificent they are till you see one in person. They're AWESOME. Wub
