Ketchikan, Alaska - This young Bald Eagle is beginning to develop its adult plumage - its conspicuous white head and tail. Eagles do not attain their adult plumage and breed until 5 or more years of age.

Found only in North America, Bald Eagles are more abundant in Alaska than anywhere else in the United States. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game notes the Alaska population has been estimated to include 30,000 birds at the time of fledging.
