Life Size Bald Eagle Illustration

Don't you just love the eagle drawing. It was drawn freehand by Ally Kirley and colored by the class. They also measured and cut out a bald eagle nest. FYI - a female bald eagle can grow up to be a little over 3 feet tall. Their nest are between 5-9 feet in diameter. Who knew measuring could be so fun!!
