Bald eagles do not really ‘dive’. They usually just fly low and snatch the prey with their talons unlike ospreys or peregrine falcons that actually dive at their prey. However, they can reach 75 mph when diving.
According to the San Diego zoo’s page, bald eagles can reach speeds of 200 miles per hour during dives. Apparently, also, Benjamin Franklin preferred “Wild Turkeys” to bald eagles as America’s national bird. Wild turkey’s move at a top speed of about 15 mph.
