• People often get excited about a big soaring bird and yell "It's an eagle!” just before it swoops closer and … oops, it's not. Here's a handy identification tip. Eagles usually soar with their wings almost flat. On the other hand, the turkey vulture—another dark, soaring bird—holds its wings up in a shallow V shape called a dihedral. A lot of large hawks also soar with slightly raised wings.

• What if you could close your eyes and still see? Well, guess who can. Besides the usual pair of eyelids, bald eagles have a see-through eyelid called a nictitating membrane, which allows them to see even with their eyes closed.

• Eagles are pretty romantic animals: they tend to pair up for life, and considering that they do so at 4-5 years of age and can live up to 38 years old, that's actually a pretty impressive feat.
