Cool Animal Sounds: Bald Eagle

It seems that virtually everyone living in the United States is enamored by the bald eagle. However, it's amazing how few people actually know what our national bird sounds like! It doesn't help that filmmakers have, in the past, dubbed the calls of other raptors over those of the eagles. This is probably because bald eagles, though beautiful to look at, don't exactly sound very impressive. For their size, they have surprisingly quiet calls. I've heard someone say the bald eagle sounds like a squeaky toy, and I must say this description does fit surprisingly well.

  1. it's almost dolphin like!

    we have a brown juvenile eagle near our house, and the local Audubon society asked us to listen for his sounds. I would have never listened for the squeaky dolphin! Thanks for posting this!
