This is a lenticular bookmark from the USA, showing an eagle:
The modern English name of this bird is derived from the Latin term aquila. This word may derive from aquilus, meaning dark-colored, swarthy, or blackish, as a description of the plumage.
Eagles are different from many other birds of prey mainly by their larger size, more powerful build, and heavier head and beakeagles. They have very large powerful hooked beaks for tearing flesh from their prey, strong muscular legs, and powerful talons. They also have extremely keen eyesight which enables them to spot potential prey from a very long distance. Eagles build their nests, called eyries, in tall trees or on high cliffs.
