  Eagle \Ea"gle\, n. [OE. egle, F. aigle, fr. L. aquila; prob.
     named from its color, fr. aquilus dark-colored, brown; cf.
     Lith. aklas blind. Cf. Aquiline.]
     1. (Zo["o]l.) Any large, rapacious bird of the Falcon family,
        esp. of the genera Aquila and Hali[ae]etus. The eagle
        is remarkable for strength, size, graceful figure,
        keenness of vision, and extraordinary flight. The most
        noted species are the golden eagle ({Aquila
        chrysa["e]tus); the imperial eagle of Europe ({Aquila
        mogilnik or Aquila imperialis); the American bald eagle
        ({Hali[ae]etus leucocephalus); the European sea eagle
        ({Hali[ae]etus albicilla); and the great harpy eagle
        ({Thrasaetus harpyia). The figure of the eagle, as the
        king of birds, is commonly used as an heraldic emblem, and
        also for standards and emblematic devices. See Bald
        eagle, Harpy, and Golden eagle.

              Though the Roman eagle shadow thee.   --Tennyson.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Some modern nations, as the United States, and France
           under the Bonapartes, have adopted the eagle as their
           national emblem. Russia, Austria, and Prussia have for
           an emblem a double-headed eagle.

Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Eagle
     (Herb. nesher; properly the griffon vulture or great vulture, so
     called from its tearing its prey with its beak), referred to for
     its swiftness of flight (Deut. 28:49; 2 Sam. 1:23), its mounting
     high in the air (Job 39:27), its strength (Ps. 103:5), its
     setting its nest in high places (Jer. 49:16), and its power of
     vision (Job 39:27-30).
     
       This "ravenous bird" is a symbol of those nations whom God
     employs and sends forth to do a work of destruction, sweeping
     away whatever is decaying and putrescent (Matt. 24:28; Isa.
     46:11; Ezek. 39:4; Deut. 28:49; Jer. 4:13; 48:40). It is said
     that the eagle sheds his feathers in the beginning of spring,
     and with fresh plumage assumes the appearance of youth. To this,
     allusion is made in Ps. 103:5 and Isa. 40:31. God's care over
     his people is likened to that of the eagle in training its young
     to fly (Ex. 19:4; Deut. 32:11, 12). An interesting illustration
     is thus recorded by Sir Humphry Davy:, "I once saw a very
     interesting sight above the crags of Ben Nevis. Two parent
     eagles were teaching their offspring, two young birds, the
     maneuvers of flight. They began by rising from the top of the
     mountain in the eye of the sun. It was about mid-day, and bright
     for the climate. They at first made small circles, and the young
     birds imitated them. They paused on their wings, waiting till
     they had made their flight, and then took a second and larger
     gyration, always rising toward the sun, and enlarging their
     circle of flight so as to make a gradually ascending spiral. The
     young ones still and slowly followed, apparently flying better
     as they mounted; and they continued this sublime exercise,
     always rising till they became mere points in the air, and the
     young ones were lost, and afterwards their parents, to our
     aching sight." (See Isa. 40:31.)
     
       There have been observed in Palestine four distinct species of
     eagles, (1) the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos); (2) the
     spotted eagle (Aquila naevia); (3) the common species, the
     imperial eagle (Aquila heliaca); and (4) the Circaetos gallicus,
     which preys on reptiles. The eagle was unclean by the Levitical
     law (Lev. 11:13; Deut. 14:12).
