Bald Eagle Catches Fish From Pond

A woman captured the moment a bald eagle swooped down and caught a fish from a pond in Mesa, Arizona.

Footage by Hannah Blackmore shows the eagle circling the pond before descending and quickly grabbing the fish with its talons. The eagle then retreated to the top of a utility pole with the catch.

A bald eagle’s diet consists primarily of fish, and they tend to nest near to where they can find them. They also feed on small mammals from time to time. Credit: Hannah K Blackmore via Storyful
