I've seen it before. Interesting video. However, I do think one has a toupee.
I was fishing a local river a few weeks ago. Typically, we see ospreys and bald eagles on occasion. Saw an osprey chasing an eagle over the river. The eagle gave up and took a roost in a tree to rest. Get it? Roost to rest???? I need to get more sleep.

Cool. Except where he wanted to feed one by hand. Seems to me that would be a good way to maybe lose a finger, or at least get a hospital visit out of it.

That's pretty cool. Don't think I've ever seen that many in one spot.

I live N of Seattle, in Skagit county. The bald eagle is the county symbal. They are every where. We have a couple of small dogs that we can't let outside without us, eagles have tried on seveal occasions to have them for dinner.

Mother nature is not a kindly grandma. Food chain for critters does not include McDonald's.

Our friend said the same thing about our puppies, part Chihuahua. No eagles around the home but we do have two hawks that find a buffet around the birdhouses and bird feeder. If we ever build an outdoor pen, it will have wire covering it.
Knowing our puppies, it might be the hawks that wind up as a meal.
