It doesn't get more American than seeing a bald eagle, in the snow, perched high atop a pine tree, on Christmas Day, at Yellowstone National Park. You can almost hear the National Anthem in the background and picture Old Glory flapping in the wind.

The beautiful footage was shared by viral video YouTube channel, ViralHog. The near two minute video was captioned:

Bald Eagle on Christmas Day 2022 in Yellowstone National Park. The park was getting a lot of snow. I noticed this beautiful bald eagle sitting above the Lamar River in a pine tree. While I watched and filmed, he never left the tree. What a beautiful sight. The regal look of the eagle while snow fell gently on his feathers. I was not close. The video was filmed through my Swarovski 115mm Spotting Scope with my iPhone
