Bald Eagle had been at high risk of extinction due to its


Large size


Low reproductive potential


High trophic level


Change in migratory route


When there are no more individuals of a species (plant or animal) alive anywhere in the world, the species is said to be extinct. Extinction is also known as the process of dying out. The process is a completely natural part of evolution. But sometimes extinctions happen at a higher and a faster rate than usual. Factors such as large body size, small population, and position at a higher trophic level favour extinction.
So, the correct answer is 'High trophic level'.
