Bald Eagle Takes a Dip in Suburban Minneapolis Lake

Minnesota resident Shaila Shirole captured a video of a bald eagle going for a swim in Twin Lake in the Minneapolis suburb of Robbinsdale on July 14.

Shirole told Storyful the video was taken in the lake behind her home. “We are surrounded by beautiful nature, several unique birds and animals. There are several eagles in this area,” she said.

Shirole said the eagles pick up fish and ducks from the lake but this was the first time she has seen one swimming. Credit: Shaila Shirole via Storyful
