Gwaihir is a mythological eagle in the “Lord of the Rings.”  He is key to the success of The Fellowship of the Ring that sets out to save Middle Earth from the evils of Mordor.  Gwaihir saves the wizard Gandalf the Gray from the Tower of Isengard and when Mount Doom erupts, he rescues the Hobbits, Frodo and Sam.  Without this eagle, the salvation of Middle Earth was lost.
