Bald Eagle

Did you hear the joke about the roof?

Never mind, it’s over your head!

Interesting Fact: The Bald Eagle has been the national emblem of the United States since 1782 and a spiritual symbol for native people for far longer than that. These regal birds aren’t really bald, but their white-feathered heads gleam in contrast to their chocolate-brown body and wings. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Bald_Eagle )

  1. I get excited when I see one when visiting family in the US. It’s like spotting a native UK raptor which is under threat because of persecution by the grouse shooting community. Only l don’t think bald eagles are persecuted in the US. As a national emblem they must be protected and respected.

    • They were almost extinct so they were under protection, but the population is growing because I been seen them quite often in the past few years. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. I was fortunate enough to handle a bald eagle last year and it is one of the most memorable experiences I have ever had. There is a nobility and wisdom about these birds that is theirs alone. Your photo is spectacular!

    • That is really amazing, you are definitely lucky to do so. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your awesome experience with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
