Caged Bald Eagle

Tonight I thought about a picture that I took about ten years ago.

Toronto Zoo, Zoos, Toronto, CanadaI was in Toronto, Canada and one of my students dropped me off at the zoo on the weekend. I had a great day wandering through the zoo and observing the many animals.

However, one exhibit has always stuck in my memory.

I had seen many Bald Eagles in the wild in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa. This was mainly when they were still on the Endangered Species list.  However, I had never seen one in a cage.

A lot of thoughts went through my mind of seeing the Bald Eagle in a cage. I often thought of this as Caged Freedom.

However, I knew that many visitors to the zoo would not have the opportunity to see a Bald Eagle in the wild, so it was good that they could see one there.

My favorite memory of seeing a Bald Eagle in the wild was driving down the highway in Kansas while following a Bald Eagle that was flying just above and in front of me.

    I’m commenting here because the original post was from 2013 and I was afraid you might not see my comment and I wanted to share my findings about Home Pride and Natures Own bread.

    I’m convinced that the original Home Pride bread recipe is being made in to Natures Own Honey Wheat brand. I too was devastated when home pride was no longer made. As this was the one thing that makes me feel better when unwell. When it “came back” on the market it was not the same. The recipe had undeniable changed. I tried many brands like you. I did find nature own butter bread as you did. But it was the Honey Wheat that is the “one”. The Honey wheat line is the exact same taste at the original Home Pride.
