Bald Eagle (ringtone)
Eric Frommer

© Lang Elliot (audio)
Bald Eagle, Haliaeetus leucocephalus
Bald Eagles are fish eaters, like Ospreys. When our national bird pursues its prey it rarely enters the water as an Osprey does, but instead snatchs the fish from the surface with its talons. Where Ospreys are common, the eagles obtain much of their food by stealing it from the smaller "fish hawk." This unseemly habit is what led Benjamin Franklin to propose the Turkey be our national bird instead of the Bald Eagleā€”but it seems the Eagle won out based on its good looks. Perhaps real life really does mirror high school. In fact, the Turkey has a much more interesting call than the Bald Eagle's scratchy squeal.
