The call of the bald eagle sounds like a faint, squeaking laugh. It’s always a surprise to hear such a large bird cry out so weakly. If you hear one, rest assured: it’s not choking, it just sounds like that!
Researchers don’t know the purposes of every bald eagle call. However, we do know that females have a mating call, and that all bald eagles have a “peal” they only use when humans are approaching.
