The Eagle's Cry

You know that iconic eagle cry,
That you hear in the movies?  
You’ve all heard it before!
You know that desert scene,
With the tumbleweed?
As the lone ranger rides off into the sunset,
A fierce cry pierces the sky!
"Kreeeeeeeeeeeeeer"
A bald eagle flies overhead.
I hate to burst your bubble,
But that's actually a Red-Tailed Hawk
Acting as his double!
I guess the Eagle’s subtle call
Just couldn't make the cut...

Everything's got to be flashy in Hollywood! The eagle's squeaky cry isn't quite powerful and memorable enough for Hollywood. So...most of the time, if you see an eagle in a movie, or other birds as well, a Red-tailed Hawk's call is often inserted for dramatic effect!
