Two bald eagles in a midair scuffle near Haines, Alaska. The cause of the disturbance is on the riverbank: a delicious portion of Haines’s best salmon.
Bald eagles are usually peaceful birds. Fights do happen, but they’re almost always over food or the boundaries of a mated pair’s territory. Eagles hardly ever kill each other — most fights end with one of the combatants running away.
