Corey Olsen made some interesting comments about the moth on a Riddles in the Dark podcast... [In reply to] Can't Post

... he spoke about the difference between the Gandalf of the Hobbit and the Gandalf of LOTR (books). The Gandalf of the LOTR would never get caught in a tree and killed by warns, he's too powerful. That's the same as the Gandalf in the films, he needs to have something up his sleeve, they couldn't have him just getting lucky and being saved by eagles.

"Durin's Heir you may be, but even with one eye you should see clearer. If this is victory, then our hands are too small to hold it. We will not enter Khazad-dum. You will not enter Khazad-dum. Beyond the shadow of the gate it waits for you still: Durin’s Bane. The world must change and some other power than ours must come before Durin’s Folk walk again in Moria.”

    This is why we needed talking Eagles Fredeghar Wayfarer Send a private message to Fredeghar Wayfarer Apr 11 2013, 5:12am

                While the moth certainly makes it look more like that... Arannir Send a private message to Arannir Apr 11 2013, 2:26pm

            It would certainly save a lot of questions from general audience members DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Apr 11 2013, 2:40pm
    Maybe because it's easier for an eagle.... dormouse Send a private message to dormouse Apr 11 2013, 10:15am

    The eagles are not their pets. Luinnár Send a private message to Luinnár Apr 11 2013, 11:52am
    Correct answer: The eagles don't want to fly near men, because they'll get shot QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Apr 11 2013, 2:38pm
        Maybe P.J. Luinnár Send a private message to Luinnár Apr 11 2013, 2:48pm
            I think Radagast might talk to them. Which is a scary thought QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Apr 11 2013, 2:49pm

            I have to say tarasaurus Send a private message to tarasaurus Apr 11 2013, 2:50pm
                100% agreed. I am so glad they did not speak. Arannir Send a private message to Arannir Apr 11 2013, 2:51pm
                I think it can be done very well DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Apr 11 2013, 2:56pm
                    It can be done right. But it doesn't bother me that they don't speak, it makes them more majestic and mysterious QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Apr 11 2013, 2:59pm
                    Hm... Arannir Send a private message to Arannir Apr 11 2013, 3:00pm

                    Maybe not that... Arannir Send a private message to Arannir Apr 11 2013, 2:56pm
                        I think it will not speak, but... QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Apr 11 2013, 3:02pm
                            Not necessary... Arannir Send a private message to Arannir Apr 11 2013, 3:04pm
                                Actually that's not too bad... QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Apr 11 2013, 3:06pm
                                    Well, I rather meant that Bilbo actually attaches it to the thrush... Arannir Send a private message to Arannir Apr 11 2013, 3:08pm
                                        Why would Bilbo attach the message to the Thrush? QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Apr 11 2013, 3:12pm
                                            This is what I meant... Arannir Send a private message to Arannir Apr 11 2013, 3:15pm
                                                I like the idea of it being a pet - like Bard's homing pigeon QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Apr 11 2013, 3:19pm
                                                    Why was the thrush so far from Erebor? DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Apr 11 2013, 5:09pm
