Every Fourth of July right here within the United States, the airwaves, newspapers, and social media channels get lined with Bald Eagles. And whereas we love that majestic hen and its inspirational conservation comeback, this yr we needed to share the highlight with another deserving birds.
It seems that 19 species within the U.S. and Canada have “American” of their widespread names. That consists of birds as flamboyant because the American Flamingo, as daring because the American Dipper, and as demure because the American Pipit. And in fact, there’s the American Redstart, which is about as near an exploding firecracker as any hen will get. We hope you get pleasure from this slideshow, and benefit from the Fourth!
