Ryan Bald Eagle Story

I saw the Eagle picking up the fish.The Eagle picked the fish up with its talons. The eagle's talons are very sharp.The eagles beak was pointed and sharp. The Bald Eagle has lots of feathers.

The Eagle

The eagle has sharp claws. The eagle sleeps in the trees. The eagle races over the world. The eagle glides over the water to get its prey. The eagle lives in America. They have big wings.  Why is the bald eagle call the bald eagle.  It is  amazing how many feathers they have.


When the bald eagle got his salmon I thought it was amazing how majestic the eagle was. The eagle has amazing long wings. I think bald eagles are amazing. I think that their claws are amazingly sharp. I saw how rapidly fast eagles can fly. I was terrified when I heard that we had to write about bald eagles but now I'm glad. Eagles are so mystifying and talented. I think they are so talented with their talons. I now know that they crave and are obsessed with salmon. They are incredible creatures. I wonder what it's like to be an eagle. I am absolutely glad I'm not a salmon.
