For the most part, bald eagles live in forests that are near rivers, lakes, reservoirs, marshes and coasts. Some also live near fish processing plants, dumps and other areas where they can find a source of food.

Bald eagles are "fish eagles" and are in this classification because their main food source is fish. They will also eat smaller birds, other bird's eggs and small animals such as rabbits, reptiles, amphibians and crabs.

Rather than do their own fishing, Bald Eagles often go after other creatures’ catches. A Bald Eagle will harass a hunting Osprey until the smaller raptor drops its prey in mid air and the eagle then seizes it. A Bald Eagle may even snatch a fish directly out of an Osprey’s talons. Fishing mammals (even people sometimes) can also lose prey to Bald Eagle piracy. Bald Eagles occasionally hunt cooperatively, with one individual flushing prey towards another.
