Researchin' Raptors!

Sometimes I must keep up my knowledge and do research on my animal friends.  In light of my last post on Hawks, I thought I should brush up on Bald Eagles too, who are part of the Raptor family.  Did you know that the Bald Eagle is the only large brown bird with a white head and tail?

Last night I viewed a video of a baby Bald Eagle flying for the first time, in Florida, which was very exciting to me!
A baby Bald Eagle is called an Eaglet, and they are able to fly at 10-11 weeks old.
  
 At one point, I even had to move closer to make sure there was not a real Eaglet flying inside my house!

I bet you can tell I have been researching a lot!
