My daughter asked a good question- "how come in Lord of the Rings they didn't just get an eagle to fly them to Mordor and have Sam throw Frodo and the ring off the eagle into the volcano (daughter thought Frodo was a wimp). Good question.
I doubt the eagles would have done it. They will do favors but don't tend to get that deep into the affairs of men and elves.

Also, I'm not sure it would be easy to fly the ring into Mordor given the all watching eye.
