A symbol for the United States – the bald eagle – and not native to the United Kingdom. He or she has just returned to his handler at Andover Hawk Conservancy after an excursion in the wild. I am very impressed with the birds at the conservancy. They were allowed to take excursions and returned to their handlers during the raptor show. Several vultures and several buzzards were also shown flying in a group.
This eagle has a twin in Europe – the sea eagle – without a white head.
