The Noble Bald Eagle
Chosen for it’s strength and power, and ability to soar high in the sky to represent freedom, the bald eagle is both the national bird and the national animal of the United States of America, and is sometimes referred to as the American eagle. They are not actually bald, but have a head full of snowy white feathers. The term bald is thought to come from an older meaning of the word, “white headed”. They look rather noble on our coins and stamps, but I think they’re even more beautiful in person!
