Eagle Day

"He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring’d with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls."

~ "The Eagle", Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)

Happy Eagle Day with a tartan inspired by the Scottish Highlands, home of the Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) one Scotland's two native eagles, and the largest bird of prey in the Northern Hemisphere! Golden eagles are identifiable by their dark brown plumage with lighter golden-brown plumage on their heads and necks. In Scotland, they are primarily found in the Highlands and Islands, utilizing habitats that include mountainous regions, moorlands, and peatlands, where they can hunt for a variety of prey such as hares, birds, and occasionally carrion. Golden eagles are territorial birds, often requiring large territories of up to 200 square kilometers to support a breeding pair. Scotland represents a stronghold for the species within the UK, with conservation efforts in place to monitor and protect their populations. 🧡 💛 🦅 🦅 🦅 🧡 💛

Eagles are among the most majestic and formidable birds of prey in the avian world, known for their keen eyesight, powerful build, and impressive hunting skills. These birds of prey are found worldwide, except in Antarctica, and are most commonly seen in habitats ranging from open forests and mountains to grasslands and coastal regions. Eagles are solitary creatures, showcasing remarkable hunting techniques that include swooping down at high speeds to catch prey with their strong, sharp talons. Their diet is varied, consisting mainly of fish, small mammals, and other birds. Eagles are also known for their remarkable nesting behavior, often returning to the same nest year after year and adding to it, resulting in massive structures that can weigh as much as a ton. The bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, is perhaps the most recognized eagle species, admired for its striking appearance and powerful presence. Eagles play a vital role in their ecosystems, acting as apex predators that help control the populations of other animals and maintain balance in their natural habitats. Their behavior and life cycle, from solitary hunters to attentive parents raising their eaglets until they fledge, reflect a resilience and adaptability that have captivated human imagination for centuries.

This tartan was inspired by the Scottish Highlands and designed by Yvonne Macrae.
