Re: BALD EAGLE! yikes!
I always thought the "bald" was inappropriate - they obviously aren't bald (?)
and if anything the white feathers would suggest George Washington's wig. :-)
I like the slang term alot of people use
for this bird - 'American eagle.'
btw, haven't seen it this morning -
I've been outside a lot watching ....
