The American Eagle


Today we celebrate North America’s most recognized sea eagle, Haliaeetus leucocephalus. The bald eagle. A large fish eating predator with a yellow beak, brown plumage covering its body, and a bright white head and tail.

The bald eagle is the national bird of the United States and the universal symbol of freedom worldwide. It is the central element of the coat of arms and great seal of the United States of America.

This great raptor could have gone extinct in the last century if not for a series of protections that turned the bald eagle’s story into one of success.

Thank you to those responsible for saving this symbol of liberty!
