[2] This keen eyesight is primarily contributed by their extremely large pupils which ensure minimal diffraction (scattering) of the incoming light.
Eagles build their nests, called eyries, in tall trees or on high cliffs.

Eagles in culture

The word

The modern English name of the bird is derived from the Latin term aquila by way of the French aigle. .The Latin aquila may derive from the word aquilus, meaning dark-colored, swarthy, or blackish, as a description of the eagle's plumage; or from aquilo, the Latin version of Greek boreas, or north wind; however, aquilus and aquilo may just as well derive from aquila (or be unrelated) and the latter be of unknown origin.^ Well, I think he's just guessing because FOX nor NBC have anything slotted unless he thinks TBD = Eagles @ Cowboys.

Old English used the term earn, related to Scandinavia's ørn / örn. The etymology of this word relates it to Greek ornís, meaning "bird", though other Indo-European languages (such as Welsh eryr or Russian orël / орёл) show that the meaning 'eagle' is older. The Greek word may be an old diminutive. The Albanian word for eagle is "shqiponje" deriving from the root "shq" which is the same for the word "shquaj" ("distinguish") and could be explained with the outstanding ability of the bird to distinguish clearly objects from long distances.
In Britain before 1678, Eagle referred specifically to the Golden Eagle, the other native species, the White-tailed Eagle, being known as the Erne. The modern name "Golden Eagle" for Aquila chrysaetos was introduced by the naturalist John Ray.

Eagles as national symbols

Eagles have been used by many nations as a national symbol.
Historic uses:
  • The Ptolemaic rulers of Egypt used it as their seal.
  • Napoleon Bonaparte used the Roman Golden Eagle as the symbol of his new French empire.
  • Persian Empire: the symbol of Persian Army was an Eagle
  • The Romans used it on the standards of their armies. .From this derives:
    • The late Byzantine Empire chose a two-headed golden eagle as its symbol.^ So Cal would fight back in the late part of the 3rd, scoring two quick goals against the Eagles to cut the gap to 1.
      • Ojibwa Eagles Midget AAA - News 19 January 2010 18:018 UTC www.ojibwaeagles.com [Source type: General]

      It is popularly that one head symbolised ancient Rome, and the other head symbolised "new Rome" at Constantinople. .From this derives:
      • The two-headed eagle is the emblem of "Shqipëria" or Land of the Eagles, which is known in English as Albania (see The Tale of the Eagle for the legendary origin of the name)
      • After the fall of Constantinople, the Russian Empire took the two-headed eagle as its own symbol.
    • After his crowning as the new Roman Emperor, Charlemagne adopted the ancient Roman eagle as his own symbol.^ The two teams have met twice this season, with the Eagles (2-5-2 NLHL, 5-16-3 overall) winning 8-3 in Marquette during the Fall Classic and 3-2 in Calumet during the Superior Cup.
      • Ojibwa Eagles Midget AAA - News 19 January 2010 18:018 UTC www.ojibwaeagles.com [Source type: General]

      The Holy Roman Empire born of his kingdom took the eagle, but the Habsburgs replaced the golden eagle by an imperial eagle. From this derives:
  • The Seljuk Turks and Ottoman Turks used a double-headed eagle as coats-of-arms.

Religion

The eagle is the symbol used to depict John the Evangelist in some Christian churches. In art, John is sometimes depicted with an eagle.
.The eagle is a sacred bird in some cultures and the feathers of the eagle are central to many religious and spiritual customs, especially amongst Native Americans in the United States and First Nations in Canada, as well as among many of the peoples of Meso-America.^ Giachino likes his future with the Eagles, “Jackson will provide us with some physicality on the back side, and will also fit into our defense very well.

Eagle feathers are often used in various ceremonies and are used to honor noteworthy achievements and qualities such as exceptional leadership and bravery. In the cultures of the Northwest Coast, Eagle is also a supernatural being and also the ancestor and features in the heraldic crests of important clans known as totem poles.
The Moche people of ancient Peru worshipped the animal and often depicted eagles in their art.[5]
.Despite modern and historic Native American practices of giving eagle feathers to non-indigenous people and also members of other tribes who have been deemed worthy, current United States eagle feather law stipulates that only individuals of certifiable Native American ancestry enrolled in a federally recognized tribe are legally authorized to obtain eagle feathers for religious or spiritual reasons.^ This comment was voted poor quality by FanIQ (Show anyway) Now this gives me even more reasons to hate the Eagles.

This ancient deity was said to be massive, large enough to block out the sun.
Garuda's stature in Hindu religion can be gauged by the fact that an independent Upanishad, the Garudopanidad, and a Purana, the Garuda Purana, is devoted to him. Various names have been attributed to Garuda - Chirada, Gaganeshvara, Kamayusha, Kashyapi, Khageshvara, Nagantaka, Sitanana, Sudhahara, Suparna, Tarkshya, Vainateya, Vishnuratha and others. The Vedas provide the earliest reference of Garuda, though by the name of Śyena, where this mighty bird is said to have brought nectar to earth from heaven. .The Puranas, which came into existence much later, mention Garuda as doing the same thing, which indicates that Śyena (Sanskrit for Eagle) and Garuda are the same.^ Bryant Froberg tapped a puck into an empty net, and Robbie Payne would score twenty seconds later to give the Eagles a 3-2 lead at the break.

One of the faces of Śrī Pañcamukha Hanuman is Mahavira Garuda. This face points towards the west. Worship of Garuda is believed to remove the effects of poisons from one's body. In Tamil Vaishnavism Garuda and Hanuman are known as "Periya Thiruvadi" and "Siriya Thiruvadi" respectively.
In the Bhagavad-Gita (Ch.10, Verse 30), in the middle of the battlefield "Kurukshetra", Krishna explaining his omnipresence, says - "Of birds, I am the son of Vinata (Garuda)" indicating the importance of Garuda.
Garuda plays an important role in Krishna Avatar in which Krishna and Satyabhama ride on Garuda to kill Narakasura. On another occasion, Lord Hari rides on Garuda to save the devotee Elephant Gajendra. It is also said that Garuda's wings when flying will chant the Vedas.
The eagle is also the patron animal of Zeus

EAGLE (Fr. aigle, from the Lat. .aquila), the name generally given to the larger diurnal birds of prey which are not vultures; but the limits of the subfamily Aquilinae have been very variously assigned by different writers on systematic ornithology, and there are eagles smaller than certain buzzards.^ While there can be no debate regarding whether the Cowboys are better than the Eagles, I'm not quite sure exactly how much better, and what that means for both the Cowboys and the Eagles.

water is not requisite. The eggs, from two to four in number, vary from a pure white to a mottled, and often highly coloured, surface, on which appear different shades of red and purple. The adult bird (fig. 2) is of a rich dark brown, with the elongated feathers of the neck, especially on the nape, light tawny, in which imagination sees a "golden" hue, and the tail marbled with brown and ashy-grey. In the young the tail is white at the base, and the neck has scarcely any tawny tint. The golden eagle does not occur in Iceland, but occupies suitable situations over the rest of the Palaearctic Region and a considerable portion of the Nearctic - though the American bird has been, by some, considered a distinct species. .Domesticated, it has many times been trained to take prey for its master in Europe, and to this species is thought to belong an eagle habitually used by the Kirghiz Tatars, who call it Bergut or Bearcoot, for the capture of antelopes, foxes and wolves.^ People who USED to where Fur had NO idea of the torture...when the learned about the abuse they stopped, they where BLIND to the real suffering...as many people are blind to the suffering of meat production.

(Heb. nesher; properly the griffon vulture or great vulture, so called from its tearing its prey with its beak), referred to for its swiftness of flight (Deut 28:49; 2 Sam 1:23), its mounting high in the air (Job 39:27), its strength (Ps 1035), its setting its nest in high places (Jer 49:16), and its power of vision (Job 39:27ff).
This "ravenous bird" is a symbol of those nations whom God employs and sends forth to do a work of destruction, sweeping away whatever is decaying and putrescent (Mt 24:28; Isa 46:11; Ezek 39:4; Deut 28:49; Jer 4:13; Jer 48:40). It is said that the eagle sheds his feathers in the beginning of spring, and with fresh plumage assumes the appearance of youth. To this, allusion is made in Ps 1035 and Isa 40:31. .God's care over his people is likened to that of the eagle in training its young to fly (Ex 19:4; Deut 32:11f).^ The Eagles again outshot the Force, 32-19.

An interesting illustration is thus recorded by Sir Humphry Davy:, "I once saw a very interesting sight above the crags of Ben Nevis. Two parent eagles were teaching their offspring, two young birds, the maneuvers of flight. .They began by rising from the top of the mountain in the eye of the sun.^ Some fans expect too much too soon when the cream rises to the top they still will bring back up your past.

.The young ones still and slowly followed, apparently flying better as they mounted; and they continued this sublime exercise, always rising till they became mere points in the air, and the young ones were lost, and afterwards their parents, to our aching sight."^ They know I’m young, and if I can get in there and show a little bit of confidence—I’ve already had some of the guys tell me I’ve done a good job with that—then they’ll start to follow.

.There have been observed in Palestine four distinct species of eagles, (1) the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos); (2) the spotted eagle (Aquila naevia); (3) the common species, the imperial eagle (Aquila heliaca); and (4) the Circaetos gallicus, which preys on reptiles.^ Perhaps special teams will dictate whether the Eagles carry four running backs – and whether that back is Moats or Ilaoa.

Eagles are large birds of prey that are related to hawks, falcons, and Old World vultures. Eagles hunt during the day and have very good eyesight.

The bald eagle is a large eagle from North America that is identified by its bright white head and tail. It is the national bird of the United States and usually eats fish.

The golden eagle is found over most of the world and it usually eats small mammals.

Sometimes, "eagle" can just mean any large hawk; as a group, eagles are not closely related to one another.

The largest eagle that has ever lived is Haast's Eagle. It is the only eagle in the world ever to have been top predator of its ecosystem. Though it is now extinct, it resided in New Zealand.pcd:Écq
