U.S., such as on the great seal, Federal agency
seals, the president's flag, and on the one
dollar bill. Bald Eagle The Founding Fathers wanted to choose a bird
that was unique to the United States. For six
years, the members of congress engaged in a
dispute over what the national emblem should
be. As a result of the debate, the bald eagle was
chosen because it symbolized strength, courage,
freedom and immortality and it would look much
better as our national symbol. What do bald eagles look like? WHERE DO WE SEE THE BALD EAGLE ? Why was the bald eagle chosen as our national

eat Eagles are hunters and are at the top
of the food chain. They also are scavengers, often feeding on dead or decaying flesh. Most of there diet is
fish, and they tend to live in areas
close to lakes, rivers, and oceans.
One reason so many bald eagles live in Alaska is because the salmon population is so big and it leaves them a lot to eat. The way the
eagles catch the fish is with their
long talons. Where do bald
