Eagle \Ea"gle\, n. [OE. egle, F. aigle, fr. L. aquila; prob.
   named from its color, fr. aquilus dark-colored, brown; cf.
   Lith. aklas blind. Cf. Aquiline.]
   1. (Zo["o]l.) Any large, rapacious bird of the Falcon family,
      esp. of the genera Aquila and Hali[ae]etus. The eagle
      is remarkable for strength, size, graceful figure,
      keenness of vision, and extraordinary flight. The most
      noted species are the golden eagle (Aquila
      chrysa["e]tus); the imperial eagle of Europe (Aquila
      mogilnik or Aquila imperialis); the American bald eagle
      (Hali[ae]etus leucocephalus); the European sea eagle
      (Hali[ae]etus albicilla); and the great harpy eagle
      (Thrasaetus harpyia). The figure of the eagle, as the
      king of birds, is commonly used as an heraldic emblem, and
      also for standards and emblematic devices. See Bald
      eagle, Harpy, and Golden eagle.

4. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
Eagle
   (Herb. nesher; properly the griffon vulture or great vulture, so
   called from its tearing its prey with its beak), referred to for
   its swiftness of flight (Deut. 28:49; 2 Sam. 1:23), its mounting
   high in the air (Job 39:27), its strength (Ps. 103:5), its
   setting its nest in high places (Jer. 49:16), and its power of
   vision (Job 39:27-30).
   
     This "ravenous bird" is a symbol of those nations whom God
   employs and sends forth to do a work of destruction, sweeping
   away whatever is decaying and putrescent (Matt. 24:28; Isa.
   46:11; Ezek. 39:4; Deut. 28:49; Jer. 4:13; 48:40). It is said
   that the eagle sheds his feathers in the beginning of spring,
   and with fresh plumage assumes the appearance of youth. To this,
   allusion is made in Ps. 103:5 and Isa. 40:31. God's care over
   his people is likened to that of the eagle in training its young
   to fly (Ex. 19:4; Deut. 32:11, 12). An interesting illustration
   is thus recorded by Sir Humphry Davy:, "I once saw a very
   interesting sight above the crags of Ben Nevis. Two parent
   eagles were teaching their offspring, two young birds, the
   maneuvers of flight. They began by rising from the top of the
   mountain in the eye of the sun. It was about mid-day, and bright
   for the climate. They at first made small circles, and the young
   birds imitated them. They paused on their wings, waiting till
   they had made their flight, and then took a second and larger
   gyration, always rising toward the sun, and enlarging their
   circle of flight so as to make a gradually ascending spiral. The
   young ones still and slowly followed, apparently flying better
   as they mounted; and they continued this sublime exercise,
   always rising till they became mere points in the air, and the
   young ones were lost, and afterwards their parents, to our
   aching sight." (See Isa. 40:31.)
   
     There have been observed in Palestine four distinct species of
   eagles, (1) the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos); (2) the
   spotted eagle (Aquila naevia); (3) the common species, the
   imperial eagle (Aquila heliaca); and (4) the Circaetos gallicus,
   which preys on reptiles. The eagle was unclean by the Levitical
   law (Lev. 11:13; Deut. 14:12).
