A. Diet varies with season and with what is available (eagles are very opportunistic in their feeding habits), but fish is the number one food type followed by some birds (waterfowl), occasional turtles and other rarer items. Average daily food consumption is from 250-550 grams per day, or between 5-10% of an eagles body weight.
