In reply to comment: whats so good about eagles?? (see in situ)

The symbolism

An Eagle represents independence and freedom because it is a bird of pray, is strong, can fish and hunt, nurtures it's young, and is willing to fight a good fight for survival.

Vultures are paracites.. they have an important job to do, eating the flesh of what is dead. They will not fight, rather, they wait until something dies, the predators have left, and it's safe to feast off rancid.
