Our national bird, the American Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus Leucocephalus), is native to North America. It was chosen as our national bird because of its majestic beauty, great strength and long life. In January, there are many celebrations of eagles in Wisconsin and other nearby states. Here in the Fox Valley we will Soar with Eagles Along the Fox River during the next two Saturdays in January. Plan to join us for some fun and excitement on January 21st and again on January 28th.
