Washington Eagle Reference -- 1858
Fellow biofortean Chad Arment, who kindly posted a comment on my previous post on my paper on the Washington eagle, has posted on his website a transcript of an entry from 1859 that references Audubon's Washington eagle. Though it is, substantially, a reworking of Audubon's writings on the mighty bird that are also included in my paper, it also contains commentary from C. W. Webber on his opinions of the bird's authenticity. Definitely worth a read. Thanks Chad!
