New National First Reader
 by  CHARLES J. BARNES, et al.


     "Look, sister! See that eagle!"

     "Yes, Frank, I see two eagles. What large wings they


     "Yes, they fly over the beach to find fish."

     "Do they eat fish, Frank?"

     "Yes, they are very fond of fish. The eagle is a large

and strong bird. Mamma saw one take up a rabbit and

fly off with it."

     "I wish we could catch one, Frank. How funny it 

would look in a cage!"

     "Yes, sister, but you would have to get a much 

larger cage than the one your redbirds have."

     "O I am afraid it would hurt me. If it got out of the

cage, it would fly away with me."

     "No, it could not do that, but it could hurt you with

its strong beak."

     "What is its beak, Frank?"

     "The beak is its mouth. All birds have a beak, but

not many have one so strong as that of the eagle.
