In The Lion Guard
Eagles are large birds, with brown and white plumage.
In the Real World
Like most birds of prey, eagles are fast fliers, effective hunters, and symbols of strength and power. Though not as large as some vultures, eagles are most often larger than other raptors. In addition to their other senses, eagles also have extremely keen eyesight, which enables them to spot potential prey from a very long distance. Their diet includes small mammals, small reptiles, and even other birds. The female of all known species of eagles is larger than the male.
Eagles normally build their nests, called eyries, in tall trees or on high cliffs. Many species lay two eggs, but the older, larger chick frequently kills its younger sibling once it has hatched. The dominant chick tends to be a female, as they are bigger and stronger than males. The parents take no action to stop the killing.

The water soon comes back and the guard starts to run. Anga saves Makini but the rest of the guard get washed away. Kion notices that the roar made an island that they're stuck on. They soon hear Lumba-Lumba who isn't in the water. Makini, Ono and Anga go to get more tuliza. Ono thinks he sees another dragon but Anga says it's just more rocks. Makini, Ono and Anga find the next moja kwa moja stone. Ono remembers Rafiki's map and says that there's a cliff with a tall tree on top.

He soon gets Lumba-Lumba back into the ocean. The Guard even escapes the dragons. The guard continues their journey to the Tree of Life.
Makini spots the next moja kwa moja stone. Bunga says it's a painting of a river but he doesn't see one. Kion asks Ono where the next landmark is. Ono says he sees a pool of water with rocks all around it. Makini remembers the river she was her with her parents Fikiri and Kitendo. Fuli is happy to cross the river without water. Beshte asks Makini if she was here with Rafiki. She says her mom and dad were taking her to the Tree of Life to meet Rafiki. Makini says that her mother says "to test the water before diving in." Bunga says where's the fun in that and Makini says he sounds like her dad. Makini soon remembers a waterfall which is the opposite direction from the pool. Kion says a little detour wouldn't hurt. Turns out the water has all dried up. Makini spots a painting that looks like a moja kwa moja stone but it isn't. Makini soon remembers a rock where you can put your hand through. The rock is covered up with dirt. Bunga soon kicks the rock and hurts his foot. Makini soon remembers a mountain that looks like a monkey's face. However the guard doesn't see anything and move on. Ono spots the next moja kwa moja stone. Ono soon remembers Rafiki's map and says there's a field with small white flowers. Kion tells Makini no more detours and they need to keep moving. Anga says there's no white flowers but there's a desert. The guard walks across the dessert when Beshte starts to get burned. Anga flies over him to cool him off. A wind storm soon comes and the guard takes cover. Makini hops down Beshte and makes a loud thump noise. Kion's scar starts bugging him and asks Makini if she brought them to the dessert to have fun. Fuli suggests giving him some tuliza. They soon see a little Jerboa who tells them to stop stomping while he's sleeping. Kion gets mad at him and he runs away. He suggests following their footsteps and go back to the next moja kwa moja stone. However another big wind storm comes. Kion sees that there footprints have dissapered. Kion asks Fuli if she can track themselves by scent. Fuli says she can't tell. Kion eats some tuliza but he can't since it's covered in sand. They decide to make shelter and wait for night. The guard comes up to Makini and says that she's trying her best. The jerboa comes back Kion says sorry for scaring him. He says his name is Tupp and sees that they took his advice. Tupp soon shows them the flowers and says the water is in the plant. They all drink the water and Makini cleans the tuliza. They soon see stars in the sky that looks like flowers.

Fuli asks if he might need some more tuliza. Makini opens up her gourd but there is no more tuliza. Anga says she'll go find some. Bunga starts to become thirsty and Kion doesn't want him to fool around. Anga finds some but it's very far away. They soon spot a sea which turns out to be salty water. Makini suggests floating in the salty water. Kion tries and soon the rest of guard except for Fuli. Fuli suggests going to get the tuliza and goes on her way. Anga says that they need to get going to the Tree of Life. But Kion doesn't wanna leave since he feels so relaxed. Soon a bunch of Flamingos come by and says they're on migration. Kion is confused on what's happening and Makini moves him away. Beshte says if they're here Kion can't relax. Ono tries talking to them but they start to have a Flamingo Dance Party. Kion soon gets mad at the flamingos and scares them. Fuli and her new friend Azaad come back to the guard and Fuli hops into the sea. Kion eats the tuliza and says sorry to the flamingos. Azaad says goodbye to Fuli and hopes to see her again. The lion guard soon gets going on their journey.
Beshte makes a new friend Tenuk. Tenuk introduces Beshte and Bunga to his other friends. Beshte says that everyone is very friendly here. Tenuk says they're welcome to stay as long as they want. Anga says they're just passing through. Tenuk says if there's anything they need to let him know. Makini says they need some more tuliza. Tenuk starts to panics, runs away and says to leave him alone. Tenuk's friends questions the Lion Guard on why they scared him. Beshte said they didn't mean to scare him. Makini says all they asked for was tuliza. The two animals panic and run away. Bunga says that everyone's running away whenever Makini says "tuliza." Beshte says that it's not Makini they're scared of. Fuli thinks that they might be scared of tuliza. A Porcupine named Smun is there spying on the guard. Bunga yells "tuliza" at a Civet. The civet is soon saved by Anga when he falls into a river. He soon panics and runs into the porcupine who says that they heard the civet say "tuliza." Tompok says he was just saying the word. Kion's scar starts to bother him and Makini gets some tuliza. She gives it to Kion and Kion starts to feel better. Mama Binturong steals Makini's staff which had the tuliza in it. Fuli asks Makini if she forgot and anything and she remembers her staff. She goes to the log where she placed it down but it wasn't there. e guard starts to track Makini's staff but has no luck. Fuli says they need to find her staff in order to find the Tree of Life. They soon spot a Gibbon and asks him if he's seen the staff. He says to ask the Mongoose. The mongoose says to ask the civet. The civet says to ask the Mouse Deer. The mouse deer says to go back and asks the gibbons. The gibbons explains to the guard where to find Mama Binturong and Makini's staff. After fighting Mama Binturong, Bunga comes back to the guard with Makini's staff. They soon head off on their journey to the Tree of Life.
Kion is in a hurry to get to the Tree of Life and he makes the rest of the Lion Guard run as fast as they can. Bunga says to race Kion to the Tree of Life. Kion accepts as long as he doesn't get in his way. However, Bunga trips on a tree and he crashes on top of Kion. They find a pond and Beshte thinks it's a perfect spot for a break. Everyone else agrees except for Kion who gets mad at them for stopping. Kion says that they can rest once they get to the Tree of Life. Makini tries to give Kion some tuliza but it doesn't work anymore. Kion tells everyone to keep moving. Bunga thinks that Kion will soon turn evil, just like Scar. Anga spots a baby goose about to fall from its nest. Beshte goes to catch it and Anga puts it back on its nest. Another baby goose falls and is caught by Bunga. Then, the Mother Goose omes and reveals they were just leaving their nest for the first time. Kion says not to help any animals who don't need it. While walking, a group of Peafowls come by doing their traditional display dance. Kion gets mad at them and pushes one of them aside, angrily stating that peacock wasn't looking where he was going, but Anga suspects that Kion intentionally knocked that peacock on purpose. Beshte soon meets a clouded leopard named Yun Mibu. Kion gets mad at them again for stopping and scares Beshte's new friend away. He tells the Guard to stop making new friends and demands Beshte to stop being nice. Fuli thinks that Kion is out of control and before the two were about to engage in a fight, Bunga comes in between them and tells Kion that he's turning evil. Kion runs off in doubt. The rest of the Guard and Makini convinces Bunga that they will be "Friends to the End". After a while, Kion still hasn't returned, and out of worry, Anga flies off to find Kion. She spots Kion hanging down a cliff and tries to reach out to him but was unable to. She goes back to the rest of the Guard and they all come to help. Bunga tries to reach for Kion but couldn't either. He tells Kion that even he were to turn evil, he'll still be his best friend. He then asks Fuli for a plan and Beshte gets Yun Mibu to help. Kion says sorry to all his friends and even to Yun Mibu. Yun Mibu asks Kion to never growl at him again, and he accepts. Makini and Fuli suggests that Kion should rest and that the Tree of Life can wait. Kion leaps on a rock and takes a nap.
Anga spots the last moja kwa moja stone and Kion asks how long it'll take to get around the lake Anga says that it's big and can take all night. Bunga suggests that they can walk across the lake while Ono says they should test it first. Kion says that Bunga is right and it's the fastest way to go. Beshte soon sees the ice starting to break and Kion tells everyone to run. Makini gets stuck on the ice falls into the water. Kion helps her out of the water.
They find the last stone but Makini dropped her staff into the river. Ono remembers Rafiki's map and says that the Tree of Life is close by. Kion says to head for the mountain pass but Fuli thinks they should wait until morning. Kion says he won't feel better until he gets to the Tree of Life. Bunga spots a beehive and tries to go and eat the bees and the honey. Kion tells him not to climb and Bunga causes a rock slide. Bunga gets stuck between rocks and Kion is mad. He says we need to clear the rocks and Bunga says they need to get him free. Soon a lion named Baliyo comes and attacks Kion. Soon, the whole Night Pride comes to attack the rest of the guard. Kion uses the Roar of the Elders on Baliyo and sends him flying. Fuli says that Kion is out of control and Rani jumps on him. She introduces herself and says that she's leader of the Night Pride. Kion says that all they're doing is going to the Tree of Life. Rani can only imagine the damage that he can cause.
She says that Kion and his friends will never be welcomed to the Tree of Life. The Night Pride soon leaves and Fuli suggest getting Bunga out from the rocks. Kion goes for a walk alone and thinks about what he has done. Kion is glad that Bunga is out of the rocks but is unsure if they can get to the Tree of Life. The rest of the Guard says to go talk the to the Night Pride and Ono says they won't give up. The Night Pride comes back and is shocked to see the guard still there. Kion apologizes to Rani for using his roar. He asks that if his friend Ono can make it to Tree of Life and says that his eyes need healing. After taking a look at Ono she says that they're all welcomed to the Tree of Life. Baliyo asks Kion to never roar at him again and Kion promises. The Guard soon makes it to the Tree of Life.
The Lion Guard finally arrvies at the Tree of Life. Inside the tree they meet Rani's grandmother Queen Janna. Kion tells Janna that he and Ono have come to be healed. Seeing that they have the Mark of the Guard Janna knows that they're from the Pride Lands. Janna asks Nirmala to take a look at Kion and Ono. Janna explains that while healing Ono will be simple, with his remedy being ready in a few days, Kion's ailments will take both time and patience. Wanting to start right away, Kion is led away by Nirmala to begin his healing. Janna asks Rani to show the rest of the Lion Guard around. Rani soon gives them a tour of the Tree of Life explaining that the Tree of Life is special because it's home to every kind of habitat, allowing a wide variety of animals to live in it. Soon Ullu comes up to Rani and she ends the tour.
The rest of the Lion Guard finds Kion waiting for a log. Realizing there might be trouble, Kion abandons his task and takes the Guard to the pass to help. The Lion Guard arrives at the pass in a rush and, unable to stop, collides with the Night Pride. Furious, Rani informs them the villains have been defeated already, pointing they're good at protecting the Tree of Life. Rani tells Kion they don't need his help, coldly telling him to stay out of their way, get healed and go home. When the Night Pride begins describing the invaders, the Lion Guard recognizes them as Makucha's Army, quickly realizing they must have followed them all the way to the Tree of Life. Kion tries to apologize, though the revelation angers Rani greatly.
Later on, Kion complains to the rest of the Guard, not really seeing how falling in a river will heal him and his scar. Touched by his friend's faith in him, Kion agrees to try again tomorrow. The next day Makucha's Army soon comes and attacks the Night Pride. The Lion Guard comes to help and
Both teams gather to check on Baliyo, with Nirmala confirming the venom will eventually wear off, much to Rani's relief. Kion spots his flower on the ground and, seeing it got trampled during the fight, begins to tell Nirmala of his failure. However, she tells Kion that getting the flower wasn't really the point of the task, noting he still managed to finish it. Bunga and Rani assume this means this Kion has been healed, though Kion doesn't feel too sure, guessing there's still more for him to do. Nirmala agrees with Kion, confirming he has taken the first step and still has a long way to go.
Kion pauses to instinctively paw at his scar for a moment before stopping himself, realizing he doesn't feel pain, and agrees he just needs patiences.
The Lion Guard is relaxing with Rani and Baliyo at the Tree of Life. Kion then arrives at the lake, sporting a mud facial that Nirmala says will help treat the venom in his scar. After washing off the mud, Nirmala notes that while Kion is making progress, he still has a long way to go. However, she tells Ono she can now heal him, saying his remedy is ready. Realizing he will get his eyesight back, Ono gets excited and eagerly follows Nirmala to the Tree of Life to get healed. After they leave, Bunga starts chewing water bugs loudly, annoying Fuli. Baliyo thinks that Bunga chewing is kind of quite for a honey badger.
The Lion Guard makes their way to the Tree of Life to see Ono get healed. Bunga, though, is still hung up over losing the bug eating contest to Binga.
Anga's sarcasm inspires Bunga to have a stink contest, leaving the others to find Binga. At that point, Rani and Nirmala arrive at the Tree with Mama Binturong, who relaxes when she doesn't Bunga with the Guard. In the underground chamber, Queen Janna
welcomes Mama to the Tree of Life, who pretends to be a harmless old lady with a limp. Janna assures Mama the Tree welcomes all animals that need healing, pointing to Ono being healed. When Rani asks her what animal she is, Mama lies by claiming to be a ginterbong, explaining them as rare when Ono remarks having never heard of them.
Presenting herself as "Granny Ginterbong", Mama attempts to get at a tour of the Tree of Life from Janna. However, Janna tells her that Rani could show her around as soon as the Night Pride rests from their patrol. Learning that the Night Pride rests during the day, Mama dispenses with the tour, instead asking Rani to to find her a tree to rest on.
Inside the Tree of Life, Janna tells Makini to put Ono in front of her, declaring it's time. Instructing Nirmala to pay attention, saying this will be her role soon, Janna places one paw in the tree roots in front of her and the other in Ono's bandaged eyes. The Tree of Life begins glowing with a strange light as energy passes through Janna to Ono's eyes. When the light dims back, Janna tells Ono that his eyesight will be better now, though it may never be as strong as it once was. After Makini removes the bandages, Ono's vision remains blurry for a moment before he makes out Queen Janna.
Realizing he can see again, Ono happily turns around to see his friends before thanking Janna. He soon finds out Bunga isn't with the group, with Beshte explaining he is with his new friend. The Lion Guard exit the Tree as Ono flies through the air in his joy. Kion leaves the group to continue his healing while Ono tries searching for Bunga himself. However, Ono discovers that, while he can see again, his once powerful sight is gone. This discourages him as he realizes that Janna was right and he'll never be Keenest of Sight again. Ono then turns to Anga, who quickly finds Bunga and Binga. The rest of the Guard finds Mama Binturong
Ono takes the chance to present himself to her, glad that he can see a ginterbong for once. When the Lion Guard informs her they're meeting up with Bunga, Mama excuses herself by claiming to be too tired. As the Guard moves on, Ono takes a quick look back to see Mama Binturong climbing trees effortlessly despite limping just moments ago, making Ono suspicions.
However, Ono turns back as he hears Bunga greeting the Guard and asking for him. When Ono flies over, however, Bunga interrupts Ono to present him to Binga. When Ono reveals he can see again, Bunga assumes that he healed Ono by touching him and brags to Binga about it, clearly caring more about her than Ono. Angered by this, Ono corrects him by saying Queen Janna healed him at the Tree of Life, though Bunga goes back to presenting Binga to the others. When Bunga naively asks for Kion, an annoyed Fuli says Kion is with Nirmala, just like every day since they arrived at the Tree of Life.
The next day Lion Guard is seen resting execpt for Bunga. Ullu wake them up and asks them to come help fight Makucha's Army. Anga quickly spots Mama Binturong calling for help, saying Chuluun is attacking her. Though Anga reports not seeing Chuluun, Fuli believes she must have hidden in the snow. As the Guard moves in to help, Ono stops as he wonders how exactly would Granny Ginterbong know Chuluun's name. Thinking it over, Ono stops the Guard as he realizes it's a trap. Going over the clues he's picked up all, Ono realizes Granny is most likely working with Makcuha. Flying overhead, Anga spots the Army making their way to the Tree of Life, proving Ono right as Kion thanks him for his insight,
Kion tells Ullu to warn Rani that Granny Ginterbong is a decoy, while he and the rest of the Guard faces off against the Army. Ullu soon arrives with Kion's warning about the ginterbong, prompting Bunga to explain she is a binturong while also quoting Ono by saying "Common knowledge, really". When Rani notes they need to make sure Mama leaves the Tree of Life, Bunga gets Binga to join him to catch Mama, at which point they spray her with their combined stink.
At the Tree of Life, Rani approaches Ono, having been told by Ullu that he was the one who figured out Mama Binturong's plan. Ono mentions that, even if his vision may not be what it once was, he still wants to help as Rani to thank him. Kion agrees with Rani, saying that even if Ono isn't the Keenest of Sight, he is still the Keenest of Insight. Ono glances at the Mark of the Guard on his shoulder before looking up at his friends with gratitude, finally coming to terms with his self-worth and his role as the Smartest, as Kion declares Ono will always be a part of the Lion Guard.
