Dude these two eagles were fighting mid-air and got stuck. They crash landed at an airport and both survived.
How hardcore is that? Look at their faces tho.
Its like “I swear to GAWD Jerry”

This bird is having a really bad day.
In Central Asia, hunting animals using golden eagles is an ancient, male-dominated sport. But 25-year-old Makpal Abdrazakova is the first woman in Kazakhstan who has taken the tradition to new heights.

YEAH, SHE’S GOOD LOOKING, I GUESS. NOT REALLY MY TYPE. I LIKE A BIGGER WINGSPAN.
THERE WE GO. PAGE 236. LOOK AT THE PLUMAGE ON THAT ONE. SWEET JESUS.
I bet you $5 that both of them are wondering if they’re sitting by something edible.
via Flickr: Bald Eagles generally don’t like to share their close personal space but this one seemed to enjoy/tolerate the company of a Common Raven for some time today down on the river ice. The raven was clearly in play mode, chortling, babbling happily to himself as only ravens can, and playing with chunks of ice. Most unusual.
Addendum: Is the raven in danger here? For the most part, I think not. It has a larger brain, better reasoning/problem solving ability, is faster, more agile and more coordinated. Unless this raven is a little gaga, I suspect that it knows its limits and is quite safe. I might also add that upon closer examination of this image, the raven seems to be displaying his translucent “nictitating” eye membrane, typically used for eye protection in many species, and in this case, a raven power display. Ravens are great mimics of other birds’ vocalizations. Perhaps this pose is another dimension of that mimicry or perhaps just coincidence?
