Bald Eagles of the Trinity River, Dallas
Dallas is lucky enough to have at least two resident bald eagles in the Great Trinity Forest that overwinter.
The Bald Eagle is one of nature's most impressive birds of prey. Males generally measure 3 feet from head to tail, weigh 7 to 10 pounds, and have a wingspan of 6 to 7 feet. Females are larger, some reaching 14 pounds with a wingspan of up to 8 feet. Adults have a white head, neck, and tail and a large yellow bill.
