Birds from Walden American Eagle

Twenty years after the world witnessed the tragic events of September 11th, we honour the lives lost with this article about the American Eagle.

The American Eagle is one of Earth’s most unique and powerful animals. Its hunting skills and ferocity make this predator number one among birds.

Gliding far above any and all food that it wants to catch, It can drop down undetected. In flight, entertainment consists of swooping in at thirty to fifty miles an hour (on a side note, a peregrine falcon can travel at speeds of 200 mph)

It can spot its prey from over a mile away. With an average wingspan of 5-8 ft, Eagles can sail effortlessly above anything.

The Bald Eagle is stealthy enough to swoop undetected to pluck fish directly out of the water.

With talons that cut through and grip its prey, this bird represents true power, yet it is so elegant and smooth in flight.

Β A symbol is so powerful that it is seen on the American quarter, silver and half a dollar.

It is also found on every bill (except Thomas Jefferson on the $2).

It can be found by looking on the opposite side of George Washington on the one-dollar bill and is almost touching the faces of Abraham Lincoln, Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant and George Washington, respectively, as we move up to the one-hundred-dollar bill.

Β Steeped in the history of America, it has been woven into the social fabric and was placed on a copper penny as early as 1776. It is imprinted on all Americans and immigrants alike. Seen in every airport and most government seals.

It is the US president’s main focal point of the Seal, the most recognizable symbol that branches out around the world to symbolize strength, ferocity and elegance. These are just a couple of core values delivered to the world by America.

Lest we forget – 9/11 and all its heroes!
