A Bald Eagle Was Photographed Nesting In Saguaro Cacti For The First Time Ever

Bald eagles are the national bird of America, and Saguaro cacti symbolize Arizona in a way that few other objects can compare to. Put them both together, and you’ve got an unparalleled display of pride for both our state and country. Such an image was recently captured in real life by the Arizona Game and Fish Department: a bald eagle nest in the crook of a massive Saguaro cactus arm.
