The American bald eagle was adopted as the national bird symbol of the United States of America in 1782. The bald eagle (Haliaeetus Leucocephalus) was chosen for its majestic beauty, great strength, long life, and because it’s native to North America.
Coming up: The Painted Desert National Park, a train ride, and a Christmas dinner show.

Sheila, these are wonderful eagle photos! I especially like the ones where he is taking flight. What a joy to be able to see this in person!
Sheila, this is so beautiful.. reminds me of the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program… miss our times together and especially that group.
