My Godfather had a cool bird in his house. Oh, it was a little aged, and missing some feathers. But it was cool.
It was an American Bald Eagle. Somehow, he got a permit to have this bird preserved. I’m too old now, to remember how he came about it.
Bald eagles may be down listed from endangered to threatened in Pennsylvania as a result of action this week by the Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners.
Not sure how the PGC’s actions effect the National Bird, as it protected by federal law.
