    when we picked out our EE, our 6yr old son said "Mom I want the eagle looking one". Yup, EE. Or maybe kinda owlish..

    Sounds like an EE, as they often have a hawk-like appearance to them. Can you post a pic?

    Thats so funny! My son named his EE Eagle ! He brought it to me one day and asked if maybe it was a baby eagle. I am glad he's not alone!

    EE.
    Owl- and Hawk-looking: My friend gave all our EES nicknames when they were younger. Two were OwlChick and HawkChick.

    Our Auracanas look a lot like eagles too. In fact, DH named this one "Liberty" for that reason:
