To DoEdit

  • Add new link to authoritative source for information on species
  • Corect reference to "largest tree nests ever recorded for any animal species" as the Wedge-tailed eagle at least has larger tree nests.

Semi-protected edit request on 27 April 2017Edit

Trying to use this page through the API and realized there are substantial formatting issues. I believe "<small>Star: accidental records</small></div>}}" needs opening brackets as the final page source has a </template> tag with no opening tag 65.29.178.132 (talk) 00:46, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

From what I can tell, it is set out correctly, refering to the stars on the image thus it is included in that section. Are you able to paste the exact text you believe it should be changed to? — IVORK Discuss 02:55, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

"Gut pill" is misspelled, should be "gut pile"Edit

Hi, sorry if I'm not using Wikipedia properly but I just wanted to point out that under Behavior - Diet and feeding, "gut pile" is misspelled as "gut pill".

GeorgiaEdit

please change ((Georgia)) to ((Georgia (U.S. state)|Georgia)) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:541:4500:1760:218:8BFF:FE74:FE4F (talk)

  Done thanks for the suggestion - Arjayay (talk) 15:07, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

American EagleEdit

Why not say that American Eagle is an alternative name? After all that redirects here.--Jack Upland (talk) 14:47, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

Citation NeededEdit

I'm a new user here, so I apologize if I'm not formatting this correctly, but there doesn't appear to be any citations for the statement "..but by the 1950s there were only 412 nesting pairs in the 48 contiguous states of the US." in the "Population Decline and Recovery" section. Cursory googling hasn't shown me any solid sources. I did find this page that makes the claim for the early 1960's: http://www.dnr.sc.gov/wildlife/baldeagle/pastsurveys.html but for all I know they may have pulled that number from wikipedia.

Photo for this articleEdit

The main photo for this article (Adler_Jagt) is a Photoshop. The original was stolen from here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.138.20.97 (talk) 23:26, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Yowzers. Thanks for the heads-up; that looks convincing (especially since the uploader seems to be in the business of promoting some river adventure thing). Will replace it. --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 11:23, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Need Updated Range MapEdit

The map (from Sibley, 2000) is badly out of date. Substantial numbers of bald eagles are now nesting, for example, along the Delaware River https://www.state.nj.us/drbc/edweb/bald-eagle.html — Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.255.91.2 (talk) 23:44, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Taken off apex predator listEdit

Not because it isn't an apex predator -- it is one of the most famous as such -- but because all eagles are apex predators. Pbrower2a (talk) 03:16, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

Typo fix requestEdit

Hi All,

Noticed a small typo under the reproduction section. Sydney, British Columbia should be spelled Sidney.
