Yes, eagles of all ages eat (and require) bones for calcium. How do bald eagles deal with bacteria that would be in the road kill that they eat? Their stomachs are highly acidic, and most organisms are killed in that environment.

What are an eagle's feathers, beaks, and talons made of? They (as well as the scales that cover the foot) are made of keratin, a fibrous protein.

The transition from first year to adult plumage (as well as beak and eye colour) is gradual; the distinctive adult colouration is achieved at around 5 years of age.

The eagle soars over water and the ground looking for prey, and also looks for prey while it is perched. Their favourite food is fish but they are opportunistic feeders and the menu can include mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. It depends on the bird's size, weight, level of activity, general health, weather, and other stressors. They will sometimes eat in the nest, especially while breeding or incubating eggs; they also eat the parts that are tough and less digestible or nutritious for the eaglets.

If they find a larger carcass they will eat some at the site; manageable chunks can be flown off to a tree, rock, or other spots where the eagles can eat in privacy. A smaller bird would be able to carry less weight than would a larger bird.

They begin to fade to a buffy brown and gradually to a creamy colour; when the bird reaches sexual maturity, its eyes are yellow. How does the eagle's vision compare with human vision? The eagle's vision is about 3 to 4 times sharper than ours. We have, however, seen Mom Hornby and several other eagles fly to their nests after nightfall.

They can see at night, but not nearly as well as they can see during the day.
