  1. And remember you stupid Americans tried to kill them all a few years ago. Canada had to help you repopulate Bald Eagles by giving you some of ours.

  2. I don’t know what schittferbraynes named this magnificent bird the “bald headed” eagle when “white headed eagle” would’ve been more appropriate, but he shudda had his butt kicked for doing it!

  3. wow, such a cool video, it is easy, with slow motion, especially on the third one, the eagles intent, how many milliseconds are slotted for ‘claws ready’ , for ‘snatch the prey’ and then back to flight, never skipping a beat, simply amazing….

  4. Why the Tf did we choose a bald eagle as our national bird. It’s one of the smallest eagles in the world and only eats little fish.
    Basically a glorified seagull tbh πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  5. I wonder, with those talons, even if they were to drop the fish if it would have any chance of surviving, or if the fish is pretty much doomed anyway due to injuries?
