Eagle

Eagle is a common name for some members of the bird family Accipitridae, and belong to several genera which are not necessarily closely related to each other. Most of the more than sixty species occur in Eurasia and Africa. Outside this area, just eleven species can be found - two species (the Bald Eagle and Golden Eagle) in the United States and Canada, nine species in Central America and South America, and three species in Australia.

Famous quotes containing the word eagle:

    A lover’s eyes will gaze an eagle blind.
    A lover’s ear will hear the lowest sound.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    You will see Coleridge—he who sits obscure
    In the exceeding lustre and the pure
    Intense irradiation of a mind,
    Which, with its own internal lightning blind,
    Flags wearily through darkness and despair—
    A cloud-encircled meteor of the air,
    A hooded eagle among blinking owls.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    Does the Eagle know what is in the pit
    Or wilt thou go ask the Mole?
    Can wisdom be put in a silver rod,
    Or love in a golden bowl?
    William Blake (1757–1827)
