A Stone Eagle with Three Escutcheons

A Stone Eagle with Three Escutcheons

This stylized, stone eagle is a decorative element, on a building. The eagle is clutching a shield that is emblazoned with stars and stripes. To either side of the eagle, there are pairs of what appears to be pelicans. Each pair of pelicans brackets a shield in a circle. The shield to the left has a scallop shell, and the one to the right displays a stemmed flower. The accompanying documentation suggests that this is part of the David W. Dyer Federal Building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places (as the U.S. Post Office and Courthouse).
