  • Bald eagle hunting deer.

    Here is a video of an eagle hunting a deer.

    I read an article a few weeks back about weight-carrying capacity of birds of prey.
    None can carry more than their own weight. Most hawks average 2 lbs.

      Do you suppose he was really thinking of that deer as prey? Maybe golden eagles have a sense of humor.

      Here's a video of a fisher climbing a guy's treestand.

        I think I heard a adult female, over 7' wingspan, American Eagle (Bald Eagle) can take about 12 to 15lbs. In Valdez the paper has warnings for people to watch their small dogs.

          Watched a vid where a guy used this bird for hunting. Don’t know what kind of bird it was but a lot bigger then an eagle. It attacked the deer and brought it down for the guy to shoot. Imagine how much training for that.

            I believe a California condor can weigh up to 20 pounds.

              If Virginia had followed through with their anti gun legislation you would have seen the start of the 2nd civil war in the US.
