A Bald Eagle Swimming!
This eagle had taken down a lone Canada goose and not being able to “lift off” with its prize had to swim to shore using its wings. Their usual prey is fish but they are hard to find and there are many, too many, Canada geese around. I am surprised that the geese are not a more frequent target.
The Bald Eagle is a bird of prey found in North America. It is the national bird of the United States of America and appears on its Seal. This sea eagle has two known sub-species and forms a species pair with the White-tailed Eagle. Its range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States, and northern Mexico. It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.
