1. I know that eagles eat fish, do they also eat birds?

### Yeah -- legend has it that when the national symbol was debated,
Franklin observed that not only are bald eagles carrion-eaters, but they're
relatively world-wide. Whereas the turkey was unique to the New World, AND
(ask any turkey hunter) a rather intelligent bird, which can walk a lot, but
can navigate through trees like nothin'. Nope. The grandiose bald eagle won
out, and the turkey became a cliché for, well, being a turkey.
