Haliae is an adult Bald Eagle that came to HawkWatch in 2017. At that time, she had her juvenile plumage, meaning she was under five years old. Haliae was found in Alaska with a wing injury that never fully healed despite the efforts of a dedicated wildlife rehabilitator. Haliae is by far HawkWatch’s largest bird, weighing in at over 12 lbs! She is still learning how to be a raptor ambassador but often joins virtual and outdoor programs. Haliae’s name comes from her scientific name, “Haliaeetus.”
