    I'd be a little worried about disappointing a family of eagles by not bringing enough treats.

    You're going to post the lyrics to your eagle song, aren't you?

      I haven't seen such acclimated eagles since.

      Saw an Eagle

      There are many who don't understand the way it makes me feel
      To look upon the mountaintop and answer its appeal
      And though I keep my feet down just to earn my daily bread
      Sometimes what I see can lift me up instead

          I saw an eagle fly today
          Its head and tail were flashing white
          As if it carried its own light
          Against the clear blue sky-- I saw an eagle fly

      There are those who think that patriots are of a bygone age
      That modern life is much too fast and history's turned a page
      But to those scoffers I must say, just take a moment, please
      Go climb as high as you can go, and see what you can see

      [Chorus]         (c) 1999 (lyrics) and (c)2000 (melody)  

      And yes, a recording under my name is at the Library of Congress... did y'all know that you don't have to pay per song; I use the "collection" option and send in a bunch on the same paperwork.
