When was the USA most like an eagle?

Making animals or people out of maps is a fairly common cartographic venture.  Here's one from the Library of Congress by Joseph Churchman from 1833.  It's not a particularly good fit... and it kinda looks more like a large-footed pigeon rather than the eagle it's supposed to be.  But the atlas it was published in was significant.
