Old Ben Franklin didn't have a very high opinion of eagles and believed they were an inappropriate symbol of our young nation. The eagle, Franklin said, was a bird of "bad moral character" who was lazy and "does not get his living honestly." The turkey, Franklin maintained, was a "much more respectable bird" and a better symbol of our country. Whether all that is true or not I'll leave to the naturalists and ornitholiogists to sort out, but it is unarguably true that compared to the eagle the turkey is certainly more tasty.
