Great Britain took Hong Kong from China after winning the First Opium War and took southern Kowloon after winning the Second Opium War. Portugal claimed the Macau region and kept it until 1999. France took over the region that is now northern Vietnam from China by winning the Sino-French War.

Most of the Western imperialism in China happened through forcing trade rights rather than through land grabs. After losing both Opium Wars, China was forced to open more ports for trading. China and the Netherlands traded the region that is now Taiwan back and forth over the centuries. China was also forced to give up control of Korea to Japan.
Eagle is the name for both male and female members of the species. Baby eagles are called fledglings or eaglets, and a group of eagles is referred to as a convocation or aerie. Female eagles mate for life after initiating courtship between 4 and 5 years of age.

The average eagle nest is approximately 5 feet across and 2 feet deep, which is large enough to accommodate two large adults and keep several eaglets safe from falls and predators.The female eagle lays a clutch of eggs and then incubates them for approximately 35 days. After the eggs hatch, the male and female partners take turns hunting for and feeding the eaglets, which stay in the nest for about three months. Only 50 percent of eaglets live to adulthood.
