A magazine article about gays has a title mentioning birds. (The author is not bigoted against gays.) How come?

Does it mention birds in general? A species of birds?

Is there a pun in the title? Some other kind of wordplay?

Does the title contain a scientific fact? I.e. "Study says: Birds are gay too" or the like?

Relevant what kind of magazine it is?

On an unrelated note, check the chatroom! (:

"Penguins sometimes form male/male pairs." "I didn't know that --it's interesting." - yeah, it is. It's fairly common in zoos: if there are more males than females in the exhibit, young males sometimes pair up, and will raise an egg/chick together if given one. But it has also been documented in the wild.

Is the species of bird one that flies? swims?
Is it a large species of bird? A small one? Something in between?
Is it a predator? A raptor? A seed eater? A carrion eater? A generalist?
Is it colorful?

PENGUINS!!!!!!! *must be squeeful over the penguins* =) *pondering*

A raptor, hmm? So, here are the raptor families. Would you kindly identify the one it belongs to?

The diurnal birds of prey are formally classified into five families (traditionally of the order Falconiformes, a classification currently[vague] in flux):

Accipitridae: hawks, eagles, buzzards, harriers, kites and Old World vultures
Pandionidae: the osprey (sometimes classified as subfamily Pandioninae of the previous family)
Sagittariidae: the secretary bird
Falconidae: falcons and caracaras
Cathartidae: New World vultures including condors.
The nocturnal birds of prey the owls are classified separately as members of two extant families of the order Strigiformes:

Strigidae: (typical owls)
Tytonidae: (barn and bay owls).

Is a particular type of eagle relevant?Are any of the following relevant:

Eagles' eating/hunting habits?
Their mating habits?
Their appearance?
The fact that the eagle is a symbol of the USA? Is it relevant in what country this article was published?

Should we find out more about the exact content of the article? Or is the fact it was about gays enough to work out the headline? Did the headline report on an event? Was it an opinion piece? Did the headline make it clear how the author felt about a particular issue?

Was the article reporting on a change in law regarding gay people? Or an upcoming change in law? Was the author gay? Relevant? Were they pro-gay rights? Were they urging for a particular legal change? For a change in attitudes? Were they explaining something? Celebrating something?

Was a pun involved? Other wordplay? Was the headline meant to be humorous?
Is religion relevant at all?

Was a particular type of eagle mentioned? Or just eagles in general? Did the headline use the word "eagle"? "eagles"?

The only thing I can think of is the song, in which it is followed alternately by "to the sea" and "let my spirit carry me". Neither of those sounds like it has anything to do with gay marriage...

To check, is it the song "Fly Like an Eagle" by Steve Miller that is relevant here?

Feed the babies? Shoe the children? House the people?

I hope you don't mind but I thought it was easier to find the lyrics online, so is the relevant phrase one of the following (as far as I can see they've all already been asked)?:

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm free
Oh, Lord, through the revolution

Feed the babies
Who don't have enough to eat
Shoe the children
With no shoes on their feet
House the people
Livin' in the street
Oh, oh, there's a solution

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm free

Fly through the revolution

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
