There many type of Eagle but I will pick the Bald Eagle to tackle here. In the late 20th century bald eagle was on the brink of extirpation in the continental United States while flourishing in much of Alaska and Canada. The bald eagle has snowy feathered head and white tail. For many decades, bald eagles were hunted for sport and for the protection of fishing grounds. The bird bald eagle is the symbol of the United States and a source of pride for much of the nation. Benjamin Franklin's hated the eagle to be the national symbol. He said, " I wish the eagle had not been chosen as the representative of this country. He is a bad bird with bad moral character, he does not get his living honestly. I agree, with Benjamin Franklin opinion. Eagle does not live honestly with his own living. He live on eating fishes and other birds and pieces. The reason why people choosen the eagle to be the national symbol of the country because it stands for strength, freedom and courage. If you don't know the look of the bald eagle simply pull out a quarter or a dollar. An eagle is shown on the back of the quarter and holding an olive branch and arrows on the one dollar bill. The bald eagle can live to about 20-30 years of age in the wild. The bald eagle like to hunt on lakes, oceans and river. During summer time, they love to hunt on sky and forest or plantation.
