"The Eagle"


He clasps the crag with crooked hands,



Close to the sun in lonely lands,



Ringed with the azure world, he stands.



The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls,




And like a thunderbolt he falls.



--Alfred, Lord Tennyson

And, as birds of prey go - look where the eagle fits in


Bald Eagle
Great Horned Owl
Red-tailed Hawk
Peregrine Falcon
American Kestrel


When it comes to the food chain, the Eagle is the top predator of the birds, even though he is not the fastest or the largest  ...  is it any wonder Jehovah used him in so many scriptures

Yes, the eagle can be a large bird



Harpy Eagles are the most powerful eagles in world weighing 9 kgs with a wingspan of 2 meters. Their wingspan length is much shorter than other large birds because they need to maneuver in densely forested habitats. These raptors have extremely long talons and such a strong grip capable of breaking a human’s arm or piercing through a human skull! The Harpy Eagle mostly preys on sloths, monkeys and large birds. They are also known to snatch up children.

However, as large as they are, they are not the largest


California Condor

The California Condor is considered to be the largest bird in North America with an impressive wingspan of 3 meters and weight up to 12 kgs. Its diet mainly consists of large dead animal carcasses or carrion of dear, cattle and sheep. The also feed on rodent and rabbit carrion as well.

Andean Condor

The Andean Condor is considered the largest bird of prey with an enormous wingspan of 3 meters and weight up to 15 kgs. They primarily live in mountainous regions where there is an abundant amount of wind to help their massive body in flight. The Andean Condor is considered a vulture, so they mostly feed on large carrion. This species is considered engendered but they are in much better shape than the California Condor.
