EAGLES are large birds of prey and although there are 60 species among them, only two are found in the United States and Canada. In my area of Canada (west coast bordering on the Pacific Ocean and Washington State) we see bald eagles all over the place. They aren't really bald; they just appear to be bald from a distance because of their white-feathered heads. They build their nests, called eyries or aeries, in tall trees or on high cliffs, both of which can be found locally. You can always tell an eagle's nest because of its size as the chicks are huge! There has even been one recorded instance of a nest that was 10 feet wide and 20 feet deep. Because of their size and power, eagles are at the top of the food chain, feeding on fish, wild rabbits, mice, and other small forest animals.
EAGLES, the band was formed in 1971 in Los Angeles with Don Henley, Glen Frey, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner. Who hasn't heard of them? One of the most successful bands of all time, they've had 5 number one singles and 6 number one albums! A few of their most memorable pieces are "Desperado," "Hotel California," "One of These Nights," "Lyin' Eyes," and "Take It to the Limit." Here's a shot of the band in the '70s.
And now you can see my little slideshow of both kinds of "Eagles" with my very own photos of the bird variety and Mr. Google's photos of the band variety. Be sure to turn up your sound to hear a rendition of "Desperado" and ENJOY!
