Swimming Eagle

I was standing down by the boat harbor this morning in Juneau waiting to go fishing. There were bald eagles everywhere. They were having breakfast. It was about 6:30am. This eagle was attacked in the air by another eagle. For what reason, I dont know. The eagle fell into the water. It sat there stunned and confused for a minute or two. It tried to fly away but couldn't take off. So, as a last resort it started swimming. I asked my fishing guide who has lived in Juneau his whole life if he's ever seen that before and he said no. Pretty interesting sight!

:-/ with our internet service, I tend to skip videos since they take forever.

That's weird! Did it eventually take off or was it too injured?
