The eagle has the longest life-span among birds. It can live upto 70 years. But to reach this age, the eagle must make a hard decision. In it’s 40’s it’s long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey which serves as food. It’s long and sharp beak becomes bent. It’s old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, become stuck to it’s chest and make it difficult to fly.
Then, the eagle is left with only two options: die or go through a painful process of change which lasts 150 days. The process requires that the eagle fly to a mountain top and sit on it’s nest. There the eagle knocks it’s beak against a rock until it plucks it out. After plucking it out, the eagle wait for a new beak to grow back and then it will pluck out it’s talons.
When its new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking it’s old-aged feathers.
When it rain, most birds head for shelter; the Eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying above the clouds. …
Winners always wins by pushing their limits until their limits become the norm.
