Redtail hawk screech in the distance

Eagles sound more like turkeys.

It's absolutely hilarious that the bald eagle is the symbol of freedom but has the most pathetic bird call

u/boone_888 Sep 23 '22

Eh, the bark matters less than the bite

u/Sudowudoo2 Sep 23 '22

Those talons are no joke.

u/Sunfirexl Sep 23 '22

Putin had the biggest bark... see how that bite compares to the bark?

A runt pomeranian puppy.

Dude is tiny AF, which I wouldn't care about and poke fun of, but he is so damn insecure about it.

A seagull on helium would be more accurate.

"For my own part I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country. He is a bird of bad moral character. He does not get his living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead tree, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the labour of the fishing hawk; and when that diligent bird has at length taken a fish, and is bearing it to his nest for the support of his mate and young ones, the bald eagle pursues him, and takes it from him. . . . the turkey is in comparison a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America."

-Ben Franklin, 1784

Guess I should have been more specific about which turkey sound they most closely resmemble, lol.

u/loveispenguins Sep 23 '22

US should just make the turkey their national bird then.

About the turkey, [Benjamin] Franklin wrote that in comparison to the bald eagle, the turkey is “a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America...He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage.”

It might make Thanksgiving awkward

2

u/loveispenguins Sep 23 '22

It’s already awkward for most families.

u/showmeyourkitteeez Sep 23 '22

Good point. We might as well make it more awkward. I'll buy more wine and I'll be fine.

i didnt realize how big a bald eagle is until I saw a photo of a natl park ranger transporting one thru airport security.

u/Bobby_Bouch Sep 23 '22

Those are the immigrant eagles
