"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

"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.
