This is a framed eagle I did for my dad a few years before he passed away. Every time I look at it, I am reminded of him. He loved eagles and was thrilled when I presented this to him for a gift. It now hangs at my house.
- The Bald Eagle has been the symbol of the United States of America since 1782.
- At one time, the word “bald” (balde) meant white—not hairless—referring to the white head and upper neck of the adult Bald Eagle.
- They can live up to 40 years in the wild and even longer in captivity.
- A group of eagles has many collective nouns, including an "aerie", "convocation", "jubilee", "soar", and "tower" of eagles.
