The Bald eagle

The Bald Eagle is the only actual eagle that lives in North America not the only eagle there is probablly more kept in captivity but the Bald Eagle is the only one that is here natrully. The scintific term for Bald Eagle is Sea Eagle with a White head. At one point in time the word "bald" meant white not hairless. The Bald Eagle can be found from Alaska to the northern parts of Mexico. Did you now that half of the worlds yes the Worlds 70,000 Bald Eagles live in Alaska thas 35,000. The north west coast is the biggest stronghold for the Bald Eagle. So next time your on the coast don't be supprized to see a Bald Eagle.

This Home made volcanic eruption is similar to the many eruptions in hawaii
These islands were formed over millions of years
Hawaii is actually the tips of under water volcanoes

The ancient hawaiins main source of protein came from fish, squid, limpet, crab and other seafood, chicken, pigs and birds. the main leafy vegetables were taro tops funny name. They also ate other things like tree fern and fan palm. Here are some fruits that the ancient hawaiins ate banana's and coconuts and berries such as the rasberry and the strawberry and don't forget mountain apples they must have hiked high up to get them and finnaly sugar cane.

Transportation:

The cheepest way to get around the big 50 is to get a shuttle not the one that blasts off but rather the one that drives around.

You could always just rent a car and then you get to see the true hawaii right now I sound like I am a travel agent that is where I got this information from.

On Oahu take the bus it is enviromentilly freindly and they have an excellent public transportation system.
