|Did you know?... There are 61 species of Eagles in Eurasia
and Africa. There are only 2 in the United States- the Bald Eagle
and the Golden Eagle. Eagles are the symbol of many nations.
Benjamin Franklin did not approve of choosing the Eagle as American's national
symbol. He thought the Eagle cowardly, and lazy. He wanted the
turkey, which he thought was a more respectable bird.
