Story of the Eagle and Change

The eagle has the longest life-span of its' species

It can live up to 70 years

But to reach this age, the eagle must make a hard decision

In its' 40's its' long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey which serves as food

Its' long and sharp beak becomes bent Its' old-aged and heavy wings, due to their thick feathers, become stuck to its' 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 its' nest There the eagle knocks its' beak against a rock until it plucks it out After plucking it out, the eagle will wait for a new beak to grow back and then it will pluck out its' talons. When its' new talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking its' old-aged feathers

And after five months, the eagle takes its' famous flight of rebirth and lives for ...
30 more years
