The wingspan of a Bald Eagle is hard to appreciate until you are close to one and witness it yourself. A couple days ago one of these majestic raptors flew directly overhead and I was able to capture an image showcasing its size.
From tip to tip an average adult will measure from 6 to 7 1/2 feet while its body ranges from 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 feet. By the way, notice the extreme detail of the feathers – all 7,000 of them!
