Eagle Fact Thursday

Fighting Eagles!

Two bald eagles were caught on tape fighting outside a Seattle home, on Sunday May 1st. The altercation lasted five hours! While PAWS Wildlife Rehabilitation Manager Emily Meredith told KING 5 News that a dispute lasting this long is not uncommon, it becoming physical is. “Usually, the eagles do a lot of posturing and communicating without engaging with each other to try to say, this is my territory, go away,” Meredith said.
