    very cool! i live on a lake in Minneapolis burbs and we recently got some bald eagles hanging around. very cool to watch! their populations have really bounced back, i'm guessing from less DDT and other chems used in the past.

    I see bald eagles sitting in the trees around the garbage dump. Eagles land where they want to land without a lot of patriotic thought.

    Landing there on that day, for that remembrance of our freedoms challenged, at that very time, as our national symbol of freedom, is amazing.

    I found a little bit better video of the eagle without all the extras:



    We have an eagle who regularly visits my wife's 24 Hour Critter Restaurant - not to eat, but to watch the comings and goings. He lets out a screech every now and then announcing his presence.


    @jmf552 Old Ben was a very wise man. I bet he foresaw the day we would have a flock of politicians who would be described better as turkeys - plucked clean, roasted, stuffed, and served up steaming hot to the citizens whom they supposedly represent.
