What if bald eagles could text?

What if bald eagles could text?  I often wonder what animals say to each other, how they communicate and what means are available to them.  These days we have so many ways as humans of communicating, from text, chat, twitter, snapchat, facebook and even the old fashioned phone call.  But are our ways of communication as effective as eagles?  Are the ways eagles talk to each other more rich and enlightening than humans?

I have found now that I have a teenager that texting has actually improved my communication with my son.  Without text, I would have to try to call my son all the time and hope he answered and he would have to do the same with me.  If not I would have to leave a message and wonder and worry while I wait for him to call back.  But now, I can immediately find out where he is, who he is with and that he is ok, in seconds, just by texting with him.  Texting has improved our already great communication and I find between my son and I, we soar with the eagles when we text each other.

This was my first band of brothers.

Before the internet, cell phones, texting, e-mail, wireless phones, video games, net flicks, atms or electric cars; when we still hand wrote letters, talked on the phone for hours and actually carried on conversations at the dinner table instead of staring at our smart phones; when we spent time outside, traveling, playing sports; when life was slower, fuller and more meaningful, I had my first band of brothers.  We did everything and went everywhere together.  I believe that in those days, the quality of life was better than it is today.
