Birds of Prey: Golden Eagle

Birds are very interesting creatures.  When I was in undergrad, I worked at a pet store.  The store had a rose breasted cockatoo named Rosie.  Rosie quickly became my buddy when she found out I would give her crickets each time a customer needed some.  A few years later, I got married.  One of the first pets my husband and I adopted was an umbrella cockatoo named Molly.  Unfortunately, the next pet we adopted was a black lab puppy named Major.  Major really wanted to play with Molly.  We felt it was in Molly's best interest to find a new home before Major hurt her.

If you read my blog, you know that from time to time, I go with my husband on his business trips.  I am his +1.  This past week we traveled to Canada.  Aren't the views beautiful!

We stayed at the Fairmont Banff Springs which looked like a castle in the mountains.

One of the nights we had a business dinner at a the Norquay Ski Lodge.  A variety of people were brought in showcase the culture of the area.  There was a birds of prey expert who let us hold this golden eagle.  Isn't he majestic looking?

Of course, after getting an up close and personal look at this big guy, I felt inspired to write a lesson about him.  It is a freebie for you!
