One day in the boat on my way to school, I saw 5 or 6 eagles. Some were sitting in tall, dead trees and the others were flying over the lake looking for food.

Eagles are one of the largest and most powerful birds in the world. Eagles rank second in size only to the California condor among birds of prey in North America. Eagles eat mice, rabbits, fish, ducks, and many more animals where I live. They are beautiful birds.
