Have you ever noticed that a Bald Eagle's bill is much larger than a Golden Eagle's? The reason for this is likely quite obvious. Fish, of course, is the main diet of a Bald Eagle, and salmon is a part of that fish diet--a significant part in the Pacific Northwest. If you have ever prepared salmon for dinner, then you know how tough the skin can be. So, imagine how powerful a bill it takes to break the skin of a salmon!
