The noble turkey! How much fun would THAT have been? . Benjamin Franklin felt the turkey had far more noble qualities than the Bald Eagle. Of the Bald Eagle, he wrote: ... he is a bird of bad moral character, he does not get his living honestly... Besides he is a rank coward; the little kingbir…d, not bigger than a sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the district. Yet, of the turkey, he wrote: ...the turkey is in comparison a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America . . . a bird of courage, and would not hesitate to attack a grenadier of the British guards, who should presume to invade his farmyard with a red coat on.

Ben Franklin invented many great things. Among them are things that we still use today. For instance, the mirror, because he loved to look at, in his youth, his muscular body.

Benjamin Franklin's walking stick, about 1780 . Franklin received this cane while serving as ambassador to France during the 1780s. In his will he bequeathed this reminder of the Revolution and its ideals to George Washington: "My fine crab-tree walking stick, with a gold head curiously wrought in …the form of the cap of liberty, I give to my friend, and the friend of mankind, General Washington. If it were a Sceptre, he has merited it, and would become it."

The optimum depth for water of a bird bath is two-and-a-half inches. Less water makes it difficult for birds to take a bath; more makes them afraid. if you want birds to use your birdbath, place it in an area in your garden where it is lightly exposed on one side, they like privacy so yes, make i…t shallow to an extent where if your eyes were level with the rim of the basin, you would only see the birds head. the colour and size matters aswell, too colourful and it will attract predators, too low to the ground and it becomes too accessable by cats/dogs, basically when placing a birdbath, treat it as though you were looking for a place out of the way and inconspicuous, a place you could do whatever you wanted with the feel of no threat, take into consideration the things in your area that could threaten a birds well being in your garden.

The bald eagle is the symbol of the US. It was chosen to symbolizeAmerica on June 20, 1792.
When he took over his brother's printing business after the British arrested him for sedition Ben took his first pen name because he didn't want anyone to know "who" he was so he could keep writing. He was only 16 or 17 years old, was an apprentice, and was committing treason ( as far as the British… were concern). His "Poor Richard" was a joke for him and he just kept using it. (MORE)
Benjamin Franklin was one of the most extraordinary of the AmericanFounding Fathers. In addition to helping create the USConstitution, he was a diplomat, scientist, philosopher, inventor,author, civic leader and (belatedly) an early abolitionist.
\n. \n. He wanted to use a turkey instead of the bald eagle. So the answer it turkey. \n.
He thought because the bald eagle sometimes rob ospreys of their fish, they were not noble enough to be our national symbol.
its a steamer duck, steamer ducks are a genus (Tachyeres) of ducks in the family Anatidae. All of the four species occur in South America specially in the falk islands
Matthew 3:16 says: As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him.
Yes, many different species of birds use the nests of other birds to raise their young. Normally the birds that do this use a nest that another bird used the previous year but some birds including the brown-headed cowbird, in North America and parasitic weavers and whydahs in Africa actually lay the…ir eggs in the nest of a female bird of a different species. Once the chicks hatch, they either convince their adoptive mother that they belong to her or they simply push the other chicks out of the nest so that they don't have competition for food and space. Most of the time, the adoptive female doesn't realize that she is raising a chick that is not her own. (MORE)
I am not sure if you mean the symbol of actual birds in the novel, or the symbol of the mockingbird. But, you're probably talking about the mockingbird, because it's a huge symbol in the book. Here it goes: . The mockingbird symbolizes the innocent people who are hurt in the novel. When Jem is giv…en a gun, Atticus tells him that he should not shoot at a mockingbird. The mockingbird, he explains, doesn't bother anyone and is happy beautifying the world with its song. It is an innocent creature. In a metaphorical sense, Scout, Atticus, Jem, Tom (the black man who was accused of rape), Boo Radley, and even Calpurnia were "mockingbirds." They only wanted to live their simple lives, but were preyed upon by negative influences. Atticus, Jem, and Scout were mocked and hated because of Atticus's role defending a black man. Scout and Jem were nearly killed by such hate in the form of the deranged and violent Bob Ewall. Tom is killed by this hatred when he is shot to death trying to escape from prison. Boo Radley was also a mockingbird, living an innocent life. His stubborn, proud father separated him from society by locking him up inside his own home. Calpurnia and the black community was debased and scorned by predjudiced people. Each character seemed to be a "mockingbird." As Atticus said, it was wrong to hurt such innocent creatures. (MORE)
If it is a New Zealand bird then it is probably a moa but it depends on what you mean by tall?
Most people believe that it was Benjamin Franklin who decided on the turkey instead of the bald eagle. But, to date, there is actually no proof that he said such a thing. Franklin jokingly suggested it in a letter he wrote to his daughter, Sarah Bache, on January 26, 1784. The letter was written …after Congress took six years to decide upon the eagle as the emblem of the United States. If you read the entire text, it's fairly clear that he is being facetious. The manuscript of the letter now resides in the Library of Congress. (MORE)
You can get different types of bird feeders. I have a wild bird seed feeder and peanut feeders, and they attract the blue tit and finches, but mainly blue tits
Benjamin Franklin did not discover electricity. He performed many experiments with electricity, but saying that he "discovered" it is like saying that Charles Lindbergh discovered the airplane. Bad analogy. An airplane is man-made. Electricity is a natural phenomenon which, like the magnetic field o…r atomic structure, can be discovered. For a man-made object on the other hand, the proper verb would be "invent" - Lindberg of course did not invent the airplane but someone did. No one "invented" electricity, but the phenomenon was unrecognized until someone, or a series of persons, discovered its existence. (MORE)
The stove is used for cooking things. Now almost every home in America has one!
He wanted to use the Turkey as a symbol of the US, rather than the Bald Eagle.
Ben Franklin didn't "shape the US" but was one of many men who contributed to the formation of the government and the ideals that have made the United States different from other places in the world.
Well, the bird in it is a mockingjay. The mayor's daughter gave it to Katniss before she went in as a good luck charm, so it symbolizes good luck. She said with it, she would live. It also symbolizes rebellion. Hope this helps, give me trust point? Thanks :)
The turkey. Franklin felt the wild turkey represented a symbol of peace, of thansgiving, and the spirit of the American people.
You have got to use all the birds which are queued up in order and you will have to complete levels to unlock different types of birds.
No...really? George Washington was the first President. The highest office that Ben Franklin achieved was ambassador to France during the Revolutionary War.
Yes, the USA was a British colony when he was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1706
Franklin wanted the turkey to represent the United States but was outvoted by John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who preferred the bald eagle.
The lightning rod was used for preventing lightning from striking. Pretty useful in his time
Because he felt the bald eagle portrayed an identity of theft, due to the fact that it sometimes steals food from the Osprey.
yes. thomas jefresion wanted the eagle and he forced james and benjemian to pick the eagle
He didn't edit it. Madison did. Franklin was 81 years old in 1787 and had gout, but he did help with the Declaration in 1776.
Benjamin Franklin did not write the constitution of the United States of America. The constitution was written by a group of people at a constitutional convention. The person who is thought to have had the greatest influence on the content of the constitution was James Madison.
Yes, the wild turkey. A wild turkey isn't like the fat white ones they grow on farms; it is a very smart, fast bird with very good eyesight (it is one of the few non-human animals with full color vision) and the ability to blend into its surroundings. . It's a good thing he didn't get his way...if …he had, we might be revering turkeys and eating eagles at Thanksgiving.. (MORE)
