Grandson Elijah's kindergarten class studied the American Bald Eagle today. He made this nifty Bald Eagle hat and allowed me to take his picture with it on his head. He couldn't remember much about the bird until I reminded him that it is the national bird of the good old U.S. of A. His main impression of his picture of the Bald Eagle was that it looked like an Angry Bird (of Angry Birds video game fame). I think he's right. It's that arched eyebrow. It's a fitting symbol of our great nation (sorry, Ben Franklin, not the turkey, of all things). Here's a link if you want to learn more about the American Bald Eagle--a fascinating (if not angry) bird.
