July 4th, 2014 – Avian Friday: The Eagle Flies on Friday, …..

I still have several more Bald Eagle images to share here on the blog. I guess there is no more appropriate species to post on this Independence Day than our national symbol. Whether or not that symbol of freedom is representative of American society across he board is questionable and perhaps a topic for a separate discussion. Anyhow, here’s a Forth of July Eagle for you all however you choose to celebrate the holiday or not.
