Palmer the Bald Eagle

Being a city-dwelling East Coaster for 90% of my life, large birds of prey are not uncommon - but it's mostly hawks, and owls - rarely ever have I seen a Bald Eagle.  
But, for the years I lived in Alaska, these beautiful and majestic skydivers were bountiful! 




Little Palmer takes exception to being called "bald".  His white snowy hairdoo is in fact, very full of feathers, and no where near close to bald - but a name is a name.  
Perhaps the forefathers of science, who originally came up with the title; with their failing eye-sight, were bald?




Palmer loves being the U.S. Mascot... er um... "National Symbol"... but in reality he cares very little about politics or country boundaries.   Palmer just loves fishing along the coast line and feeling the winds beneath his wings.  If being the National Bird frees him up to fish in peace - then he's all for it.



This little eaglet wants to help you celebrate the patriotic holidays, honor the military member in your family or just befriend a bird lover (with lots of fish).  
Although smaller than his wilder brothers, Palmer is still out to impress, at nearly 15 inches in height. 


15 pages of detail oriented photographs, tutorials and written instructions, help you to create this easy "Sculpt-Gurumi" friend for giving, sharing or just showing off your Patriotic Pride.  BONUS United States Flag pattern accompanies Palmer.


Purchase Palmer the Bald Eagle on Etsy.com

**DEDICATION:  Palmer takes his name from a man who should be remembered for his bravery, his fearlessness and his dedication to saving the lives of others - a beautiful heart and majestic soul, that represents the best in each of us.  A man by the name of Orio Joseph Palmer. Battalion Chief Palmer died at 9:59 EST as the South Tower of the World Trade Center - collapsed moments after he reached victims on the 78th floor - He was the first one to the impact zone.
