I believe the eagles also didn't want to get involved in the affairs of men. Didn't see it as their problem till Sauron started fucking everything up.

Granted that's what a friend told me. I never read the books either.

The eagles were involved almost from day one. Gandolf asked radagast to use the animals for eyes. The only reason you ever see them in the main story is because they are already combing middle earth for intel. The one who rescues gandolf is only showing up to report and then finds him as a prisoner.
