ALL ABOUT EAGLES
The Bald Eagle is the national bird of the United States of America and is a bird that many people hold dear.
Kids seem drawn to eagles because they are a large and powerful bird. What many kids probably don't know is that there are around 60 different species of eagles. We are used to talking about bald eagles, but that is just one kind of eagle!
While you kids are using the eagle color pages to create some nice artwork you can teach the kids all about eagles!
Here are some great talking points:

- These birds have powerful eyes and keen vision that allows them to spot their prey from a long distance.
