Eagle screams in flight with salmon

A fully-grown adult bald eagle screams as it flies through the air with a salmon carcass grasped strongly in its talons. The bald eagle screams loudly during flight to scare off any potential challengers fro its catch. Bald eagles will not hesitate to steal food from their own brothers or sisters.

The bald eagle is one of the largest flying birds in the United States. Like many raptors, bald eagles have reversed sexual dimorphism. This means the female Bald Eagle is generally larger than the male. Good for mama! All bald eagles are tenacious fighters and will use their beak and talons to scratch and tear apart predator and prey alike.
