The Bald Eagle is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.

It has yellow buttons, pink trim and a white belt. Underneath her coat, Bald Eagle wears tights of the same color and a navy blue miniskirt. She also wears white gloves and a pair of yellow boots.
In Real Life
The bald eagle is a bird of prey native to the North American continent. It is one of the largest raptors in North America. Fish make up the majority of its diet, although it also feeds on mammals and other birds. As an opportunistic hunter, the bald eagle will take other sorts of prey, such as reptiles or amphibians, if given the chance.
The bald eagle's name most likely derives from the adjective "piebald", meaning "spotted with two different colors". This description is quite fitting; the plumage of the bald eagle's body and wings is a dark brown, whereas its head and tail are colored white. Its claws, beak and eyes are yellow.
Bald eagles have virtually no natural predators, although human activity has posed a grave threat in the mid-20th century. Due to hunting, habitat loss and chemical poisoning, the bald eagle population declined severely, with only 487 nesting pairs remaining by 1963. Thanks to various recovery programs, the population has ever since made a comeback; by the year 2006, 9789 breeding pairs were reported in the continental United States. On June 28, 2007, the bald eagle has been taken off the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's list of endangered and threatened species.
- Bald eagles build the largest nests out of any bird in North America, if not the world. The world record for the largest bird's nest is held by a pair of bald eagles; the nest measured 2.9 meters wide and 6 meters deep.
- The piercing, shrill cry often associated with bald eagles actually belongs to the red-tailed hawk.
