I remember my first eagle ceremony when I turned nine. The first eagle you get is always declawed, which I always thought was pretty inhumane, but it was a good way to ease into caring for the birds. My eagle (named Baldy, because I wasn’t a terribly clever child) was already quite old when I received him (he was a rescue eagle, luckily) but I did have him until I was 16. I don’t know if I was more excited about getting my drivers license that year, or my new eagle! You should have seen the party we had when I got him, too! Grilled hot dogs and fire works and lemonade…. obviously I named my beautiful new eagle Freedom. He’s too big to keep inside anymore, unfortunately, but we’ve got a pretty comfortable roost for him on our apartment’s balcony.

Ah, yes, the eagle ceremony! My Justice and I remember his quite well. (They had just come out with telepathic link transplants when I got him, which is how I know he remembers it.) Our celebration was quite modest, compared to Freedom’s—apple pie under a cloudless summer sky as we signed our Declaration of Interdependence. I still have the inked and talon-pierced document hanging on my wall.


I named mine Paul, he sits perched on my shoulder when I’m reading my bible.

I’ve trained Peter to fly to the nearest Pizza Hut and pick up my pizzas for me. 

I named mine Harry. I trained him to bring my mail for me.

Mine is named Hunter. Appropriately enough, I trained him to operate firearms with his talons. He hunts vermin, such as possums, terrorists, and raccoons.

    I think we all forgot about the traditional song played when we summoned an eagle. Let me remind you all. I’m gonna rise...
