If you kill a bald eagle and it's not a justifiable killing of the bald eagle it can get you into some serious trouble.
If it's your first offense at killing a bald eagle you'll usually get a fine of $5,000.00 and possibly 1 or 2 years in prison.
Then if you get caught a second time killing another bald eagle then the fine goes up to $10,000.00 and another 2 years in prison and for the third conviction of killing a bald eagle you can get an even higher cost fine.
The fine for the third offense of killing a bald eagle is around $250,000.00 and possibly another 2 years of imprisonment.
So never kill a bald eagle unless it's justifiable as in harming you or someone which they rarely do.
