Bald Eagle Caught In Viral Video: NPR



Bald eagles are typically known for their elegant flying, skilled hunting and having such majestic strength and beauty that they became the U.S. national bird. But they also have a lesser-known talent: swimming.

Yes, bald eagles are really good at swimming, and some of us learned this week from and viral video published by New Hampshire TV station WMUR.

In it, a bald eagle's white head bobs rhythmically through the water. Occasionally and the wing can be seen as the bird does an avian equivalent of the butterfly stroke. It moves quickly and gracefully through the water, covering a considerable distance before it reaches the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee. It calmly strides onto the land, shaking the water from its feathers before it strikes a watchful, picturesque pose.

The video was shot by Tyler Blake, who spotted the display early in the morning before heading to his construction job.

"I ran down to the docks and I saw an eagle flapping in the water," Blake told WMUR. "I'm like, 'Wow!' "”

In fact, eagle researcher Jim Watson of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife says" swimming is not a good thing. "
