Bald eagle chick born and healthy

Bald eagle chick born and healthy

That is a good start for the year 2017 and maybe it is also a sign for good fortune. Just at the brink to a new year we in Florida are lucky. A breeding eagle had a little eagle chick as the breeding camera showed.

One of the breeding and residential grounds is the state of Florida and this particular one was breeding in the Everglades in South Florida. It made us all happy to see this little fluffy bird because a few days ago a mature female eagle died because of her injuries and the trauma when she slid into a storm drain.

The bald eagle is the national bird of the United States and you will find pictures on many federal governmental buildings and items like the federal seal or on the rug in the oval office in the White House. 

Eagles are also strictly protected and it is illegal to obtain or to possess any part of these birds of prey – not a feather nor a claw. According to the beliefs of the Native Americans the bald eagle is a sacred bird and serves as a messenger between the gods and the humans. Feathers and claws of this majestic bird are used for rituals in the Native American religion. Therefore every feather that you find anywhere or even when you find a dead eagle you have to turn over to the authorities.
