I am the eagle
I live in high country
in rocky cathedrals
that reach to the sky
And all those who see me
and all who believe in me
share in the freedom
I feel when I fly
Come dance with the west wind
and touch all the mountain tops
sail over the canyons
and up to the stars
and reach for the heavens
and hope for the future
and all that we can be
and not what we are
(an Eagle forever)
Some info about Eagles
Different bird books dispute whether or not
the bald eagle is larger than the golden eagle,
but regardless they are both large raptors.
In this species the guys must tip their hats to the ladies,
for the female eagles are the largest at around six kilograms,
a metre tall with two-metre-plus wing spans.
The males weigh in at 3.5 to 4.5 kilograms.
Bald eagles have been known to live over 40 years.
Their white plumage slowly forms over the first five years,
making identification difficult.
It's easy to confuse immature birds with golden eagles.
Bald eagles are lazy hunters,
preferring carrion and often gorging themselves
to the point that liftoff is impossible.
They have also been known to harass other predators
and birds of prey until they abandon their kill,
which opportunist eagles steal for supper.
They are actually capable of spotting food over a kilometre away.
The bald eagles' nests are built onto year after year,
with some structures so large that they topple under the weight.
One such nest studied, weighed 1,980 kilograms
and measured 6.5 metres deep and over a metre wide.
