KENTUCKY LAKE, Ky. - Bald eagles are a status symbol in the United States; they represent the land of the free. Believe it or not during the winter months the Heartland is one of the best spots in America to see the national bird. On Monday Erica Byfield went on a sight seeing tour a counted at least 20.
You could call it a combination effect. Its winter, I'm on Kentucky Lake, and there's a crowd of people on this boat with binoculars, all of us bending our necks...eyes on the sky.
This eagles not the only one to something to get excited about. "I've looked at my patch and I'm like that pretty nice, that's pretty close to what we wear" Sterling Griffin is a part of famous 101st Air Assault division and his unit is called the Screaming Eagles. "We go in we attack and we get out" said Griffin.
At the end of the trip they aren't the only ones with a story to tell. We all do, who would have ever thought the great bald eagle lives in our backdoor.
