Why is the bald eagle our national bird?
While you're making your Edible Eagles on the 4th of July, you might be wondering just why the bald eagle is the national bird of the United States. The bald eagle was chosen for its majestic beauty, great strength, and long life. It is also a native bird in North America. 
The idea for using the bald eagle to symbolize America was proposed in the 1700s when an eagle was included in a drawing of a new official seal for the new United States. The bald eagle went on to become an American icon appearing on official documents, money, flags, public buildings, and other government-related items.
The bald eagle was the perfect choice for a new nation that was still at war because they're fierce hunters. Their wingspan can be up to seven feet when they're full grown and they can dive at 100 miles per hour. So while you're making your 4th of July crafts, you can share your new knowledge about your national bird!
