Bald eagles are one of two species of eagle in Yellowstone, the other is the golden eagle. They are raptors and carnivores, seeking a diet of fish, waterfowl, rodents and small mammals. They also scavenge from the carcasses of large animals such as elk and bison.
Where to find them
Bald Eagles are frequently seen along the rivers in Yellowstone. Early morning along the Madison is one of the best spots. Also just south of Canyon along the Yellowstone River is another good place to watch for eagles.
