The bald eagle is actually not bald. The name dates back to the old meaning of bald, meaning white headed.
In the first 4-5 years of it's life the feathers on the bald eagles head are brown, like the feathers on most of the body. Only after 4.th or 5.th year they get the white head plumage, also at that age becoming sexually mature.
The bald eagle is considered by some Native American cultures as
a sacred bird, an image of strength, an image of peace, like the
spirits sometimes appear in the guise of a bald eagle.
The feathers of the bald eagle are used in ritual dances, and they are also used as signs of manhood and courage.
It has happened that people have caught a salmon or trout with a
"crown". This crown is formed by the claws and legs from the bald
eagle, still fixed in the back of the fish.
A young and inexperienced bald eagle has taken hold in a large and strong fish, and has not been strong enough to lift it. It was then pulled down in the water where it is drowned or died of cold.
Gradually the bald eagles body dissolved, it loosened from the claws, which were then left fixed in the fish as a "crown".
The American bald eagle is the national bird of the United States.
