Good Thursday evening from Click2Houston.com.

It was American Eagle Day. Most people know the American eagle as the bald eagle. The bird was adopted as the national symbol in 1782. It was once in danger of extinction but the ban of DDT has allowed the bald eagle to recover. Southeast Texas is one of the few places where these majestic birds can be found year-round.

Let’s get your day wrapped up with a look at the forecast and the top headlines of the day.
