One of the most common questions I get about eagles is “how can you tell the sex”?

It’s really easy to tell when they are side by side. The eagle that is the largest will be the female. Females are 1/3 larger. All female raptors are larger then the males.

Most of the time when you see an eagle,they are by themselves. So in this case the beak is smaller with the male as well as the head size.
