Two bald eagles fighting while flying

In Bald Eagles, Pictures by D

A pair of bald eagles fight in flight while another eagle watches from the ground. This fight took place on the shores of a river in the snowy Alaskan wilderness.

When bald eagles gather in large groups, they can often be observed sparring and fighting while flying. The scavenger birds aren’t afraid to be aggressive with one another, especially if they are in pursuit of a meal. The large, vocal raptors often steal prey from other birds.
