Bald eagles are big and majestic, even the young ones like the immature bird pictured here.

Who's smart and cocky?   That small black bird in the back:  a crow pulling the bald eagle's tail.

Sometimes crows are a little too daring but this one is getting away with it.

  1. Potentially of some interest, based on geographic location, I would guess that the crow is a Northwestern Crow (Corvus caurinus). American Crow doesn’t occur in coastal British Columbia. I’d love to see a Northwestern Crow — it would be a lifer!

  2. Ha – love this photo! It made me think of Canuck, the crow in Vancouver, BC that has befriended his very own human, Shawn.
