Attach two smaller oblongs on the branch. They will serve as the eagle’s feet. Add a rectangle below the body to make the tail.
Draw an inverted triangle and a small circle beside it for the beak. Then, add an oval-shaped body.

Step 3: Draw the lower chest and beginning section of the wing.
Now outline the contours of the head and wings more precisely. Erase all the initial sketches. Draw two “hooks” and a line between them in the center of the tail. Draw the plumage on the ends of the bird’s wings. Draw a line separating the beak from the head. Then simply add an eye.
Draw a large oval with the top wider than the bottom for the body. Then, draw two small ovals below it for the legs.
Based on the outlines, draw the head and beak along with the eyes. Make pointed curves below the head to complete it.
Draw a triangle for the right wing and a large trapezoid for the left wing.
Draw three quadrilaterals, one slightly bigger than the other two. Add two small circles for the feet.
Do I curve the eagle’s wings or bend them? If I do, do the wings go up or down?
Here are some interesting facts about the Eagle you might find interesting.
Add details to the wings. This time make softer curved lines instead of zigzag lines for the feathers.

Make an outline for the head and the body of the eagle. Draw a circle for the head, an upright quadrilateral for the neck and a big oblong for the body. As for the beak, attach a smaller quadrilateral on the head and a slanted triangle.
The following steps will help you sketch the body more precisely. Draw a longer curved line on the upper contour of the left wing. Do the same with the right wing. Next draw a triangle with a rounded angle, which will be the beak of your eagle. Draw a separation line between the neck and the lower body of the bird. Draw a line to the ends of the eagle’s tail.
Now you should draw a zigzag on the bottom of the tail and wings. Visually divide the wings into several segments, with lower part of the wings being the biggest segment. Draw vertical lines in all the segments except for one on the left side. Draw the same lines on the eagle’s tail. Refinish a small circle in the end of the contour for the eye and draw a short line to the right of the circle.
Add more detailed shapes on each of the wings to make them more elaborate.
It really depends on the stage of flight – most birds’ wings bend down, but some birds bend slightly upward before flapping down. I suggest watching a video of a flying eagle and slowing down the speed.
This lesson will help you learn how to draw a bald eagle in pencil step by step and learn the techniques for drawing any bird, for example draw a Stork, draw a Swan etc. An eagle is a predatory bird – it is so strong that it can even take down a lamb. Its body structure differs from that of many other birds. Big wings and a curved beak make an eagle look formidable. Eagles can fly really fast thanks to their wings. Their acute vision allows them to detect prey from a long distance. An eagle is often pictured on flags of different countries. It’s not too hard to draw this bird. The most difficult step is drawing the wings. It is also very important to draw the beak and eyes correctly, as these are the eagle’s distinguishing features. You can also draw mountain landscape in the background. Now let’s start drawing the eagle in pencil.
Now you should draw an approximate shape of the head, wings, and tail. First draw a circle in the center of the line, which you previously marked for the wings. Then draw a line from the center of the oval to the upper line of the left wing, leaving a small gap in between two lines. Repeat this step on the right side but make the lower line a bit longer than the upper one. Draw two lines for the tail of an eagle on the right side of the oval.
Complete the head, body, and feet based on the outlines, darken the necessary outlines and draw the details.
Step 6: Add some wing details and start the sketching in the claws.
Complete the wings and tail based on the outline. Draw curves inside and on the edges of the wings and tail to simulate the feathers.
Draw two lines above the body for the wing outline and a trapezoid on the left part for the tail.

Draw a circle for the head and draw two curves connecting the head and body.
Draw a series of ovals for the feet. Add pointed lines in the edges of the ovals to make the claws.
At first, draw a curved line with an indentation in the middle of it that will serve as wings. Now draw an oval beneath the indentation; it should be slightly tilted to the right. This oval will be the body. The oval must end in the middle of the right wing. Make sure you stick to the advised proportions here.

As a final step, shade in your bald eagle using #2 pencil. The eagle’s wings must be black with white gaps, which will signify plumage shining in the rays of the sun. Draw some fuzz on the bird’s head. Then draw some lines on your eagle’s feet. Also add some light lines on the tail. Your eagle drawing will be more beautiful if you draw mountains or the sky in the background.

Most of the 60 species of eagles exist in Eurasia and Africa. They have extremely keen eyesight which enables them to spot potential prey from a very long distance. Many species lay two eggs, but the older, larger chick frequently kills its younger sibling once it has hatched.
The parents take no action to stop the killing. The eaglets do not develop adult markings until their third year, when they leave parental protection and seek their own mates and territories. Their nests can become enormous, measuring up to ten feet across and weighing well over 1,000 pounds.
Complete the wing outline by drawing curves from the edge of the wings connecting to the body.
