A bald eagle grooms itself in a tree Sunday, March 3, 2002 in Juneau, Alaska. An eagle can stay busy grooming as it has around 7,000 feathers from head to tail. An adult female eagle can weigh as much as 15 pounds and have a body length of 34-37 inches, with a wingspan of over seven feet. Males are slightly smaller. The bald eagle's scientific name is "Haliaeetus Leucocephalus," which means "sea eagle with a white head."
