We have seen many Bald Eagles in our travels around the country but nothing like last night. Here at the lake at our Orlando campground there was a group of about 40 circling and diving through the air. When Eagles gather, it is called a convocation. (I had to look that up…). It was a great sight. They are magnificent flyers, maintaining a trademark rigid back and neck as they soar. While finding convocation on the web, I was reminded that Congress named The American Bald Eagle our national bird in 1784. Ben Franklin objected thinking that the wild turkey would be a better choice. Eagles do eat carrion…but I am glad Congress went forward. I prefer a national bird that screes rather than one that gobbles.
