The largest eagle we have in Great Britain is the erne or white-tailed eagle—the sea-eagle.
Yes, sir; it's a sea-eagle; some call 'em, I guess rightly, ospreys.
At two of the morning she heard once more the cry of the sea-eagle, but this time close at hand in the yard.
Would the Kammerboy get past so swiftly that the sea-eagle could not reach it?
Then said the sea-eagle: “Look forth, shipmate, and tell me of the land.”
Then he came back again to the sea-eagle, who said to him: “Son, what hast thou seen?”
Climbing to the place, and watching like an Indian in ambush until it dropped to its nest, Audubon found it to be a sea-eagle.
Said the sea-eagle: “Abide the wearing of another hour, and come and tell me again, and then I may have a gainful word for thee.”
“And with me it shall be well ere long,” said the sea-eagle.
He tells of his coming from afar, screaming like the sea-eagle.
