Eagles are known for their aggression but the most astonishing thing with this bird is their ability to nurture their young ones.Lots of research shows that no member of the bird family is more gentle to its young one then eagles.When the mother eagle sees that time for it to teach the eaglets to fly.she gathers her eaglet on to her back and spreads her wings.Suddenly she swoops out from under the eaglet,and allows it to fall.As it falls, it gradually learn what its wings are for until the mother catches it again..Eagle can fly up to altitude of 10,000 feet but able to swiftly land on the ground.
