A young bald eagle swoops in to grab a dying salmon from the banks of the river during the Alaskan migration. Eagles keen eyesight can allow them to spot a fish up to a mile away.
Bald eagles feed mainly on fish, but may supplement their diet with water fowl, small mammals and carrion, especially when fish are in short supply. Bald eagles are also known to be opportunistic feeders – fighting over and stealing meals away from each other, as well as from other birds, such as osprey.
