Video: Eagle Swims to Shore with Catch in Its Talons

A bald eagle with a big appetite was recently filmed near Olympia, Washington grasping a fish so big that it couldn't get airborne.

Tested, but not beaten, the eagle decided to swim to shore with its catch. Remarkably, by lunging its wings forward in a sort of butterfly stroke, it eventually made it to dry land, took a few moments to regain its bearings, and then dined on one hard-earned meal.
