This is one of two young eagles born last spring in a nest just a few hundred yards from Fidalgo Bay. Both were flying Saturday, but I didn’t get them in the same frame. According to www.eagles.org, the bald eagle was officially declared the national emblem of the United States by the Second Continental Congress in 1782. It was selected by the founding fathers because it is a species unique to North America. The bald eagle’s image and symbolism have played a significant role in American art, folklore, music and architecture. White head and tail feathers come around age four or five, and eagles can live up to 50 years.
