30 Bald Eagles Found Roaming In Man`s Backyard

Submitted by: slappy 8 years ago in Misc

And in his bizarre home video, you can see his kids feeding them fish. Shouldn"t they be more scared of these eagles?

Dude, screw all those motivational posters at work that say "Leaders are like eagles, they don`t flock, you only find them one at a time"

Yeah. I`m not really surprised the eagles were so mellow around people.
I can`t imagine anyone every messed with them, because:
A. They`re big taloned predators.
B. They`re endangered and I imagine it`s illegal to touch them, let alone get in a certain radius of them.
and C. They represent our state. :P

Any-who ... The kids didn`t really bother me, although to be honest I didn`t watch the whole thing through without fast forwarding.

I probably would never let my own kid out there (if I had one), but I sure as hell would want to be. XD
That`s a pretty crazy sight.

everyone is acting like the birds are going to rip the kids apart. im pretty sure the birds have more to be afraid of with the people than the other way around. no, these kids are lucky, SUPER lucky to have had such an awesome experience. im jealous.

Even us Floridians wouldn`t let our brats mess with juvenile alligators that wander into town and sun themselves on our porches, much less feed them while prancing about in their underclothes.

I`m glad the kids were unharmed, no thanks to their mildly retarded parents.

Two things wrong with this parenting. 1. a girl of that age should have pants on before exiting a house and 2. those talons can rip flesh and those beaks can tear strips..it`s called respect wildlife and your children`s lives and well being.

We live in bear country, we have bald eagles here too, won`t see my kids that dang close to those birds and won`t see my daughters running around outside with arses hanging out and no pants on.

I watched this yesterday but had to watch it again and I swear that at about 3:45 in the video the Eaglet he`s taping is laughing his [email protected]@ off cuz he knows they are there to take over the human race! These people do know that these are Birds of Prey, right? The way they`re letting their kids run around them I wonder...specially the little girl with no pants that keeps scratchin` her butt.

Darn them! They didn`t get Devi`s list of approved places to live. How dare they? Please, Devi, send us a video of a few dozen awesome birds of prey on the front lawn of your private island mansion so we can all scrutinize how you live. (And insult any children who are justly excited by such an event.)

White trash. They live next to a warehouse? That little girl was a right dolt.

A convocation of eagles. Bald Eagles occasionally hunt cooperatively, with one individual flushing prey towards another.

This seems very unusual
Bald eagles live in pairs
and have a territorial radius
I cant remember the exact amount of miles
When their young age some they fly away and never return
I dont know why this is happening

I can`t be the only one who heard the little girl say something like "No! Not all eagles eat red salmon...some of them are allergic."

Seriously though, anyone got any basic ideas as to why there would be 30+ eagles in this guy`s garden?

bet this is in northern british columbia, canada. they migrate up there to mate and eat the spawning salmon that swim upriver.

one of my relatives brought her small dog (shih-tzu) up there (terrace bc) and an eagle swooped to get him but he ran under a car.

eagles have been known to kill and eat baby deer, etc. im serious.

"An eagle can consume one pound of fish in about four minutes. The eagle holds its prey with one talon, holds onto its perch with the other, then tears off each bite with its beak." (Shiver)

Could be a good use of a resource - tell the kids if they don`t behave, you`ll leave `em alone with the eagles! chomp, tear, nom, nom....

I am not a bad mother....I`m not...really...no you can`t ask my kids...they`re out playing with the eagles.

"The bald eagle steals food from other bald eagles as well as other species." (Cheeky little predators, huh?)

No wonder it`s the US symbol!! Further, just for your limited entertainment:

Status of the bald eagle - On June 28, 2007 the Interior Department took the American bald eagle off the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants.
The bald eagle will still be protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.

There is no law saying that they cannot feed the eagles. :P

Onto the video, good God! That is flippin` awesome. One lucky family gets 30 eagles in their backyard at once. Not the best idea trying to approach one, though.

Cool! Thanks dm2754. I`ve NEVER seen them do anything like that here.

We see a lot of them, especially around the river bluffs near Red Wing, and occasionally even in the Minneapolis area but I`ve never seen them in a group, always alone.

Bald eagles or not on the endangered or threatened list but are still a protected species.
It is not uncommon for a large amount of bald eagles to be seen together especially during "fishing" season.

I have to admit, they did look a little like golden eagles at first. The eagles that live near us are either older bald eagles or golden eagles. those were a little smaller than the eagles up here in Colorado, even the bigger ones weren`t that big.

lucky guy though. Ours never come near us.

this is most likely in alaska. When i go up to dutch harbor to work they are all over the place just picking scraps off of fishing nets and garbage. Let me tell you nothing inspires more pride in country than seeing the national bird covered in mudd eating out of the dumpster.

send55: Actually, Bald Eagles became an endangered species as early as the 1920. It was speculated in the 1940 and `50`s that the pesticide DDT had an adverse effect on the females body chemistry, causing their eggs to be very thin-shelled. Supposedly, oil, lead, and mercury had the same effect. The fact that hunters considered them a nuisance and killed as many as they could didn`t help matters.

Davio Magnifi: Are you kidding? You can see quite clearly what they are. Their heads and tails take at least four years to become completely white.

Definitely one of the cooler things I`ve ever seen. I see Bald Eagles here in Minnesota frequently. But I wonder about a couple of things...

1) Eagles are normally solitary creatures. They don`t flock. Why are there so many of them together like this?

2) Why was the guy narrating letting his kids harass them like that? I didn`t see any of the kids actually FEED any of the eagles, and following them around and in the one instance, the smallest girl was going to run right up to one and try to either pet it, or pick it up.

I`ve never seen behavior like that from the ones here in Minnesota, and if I did, I`d be very cautious about approaching them so closely.

I would however, pull out my video and still cameras and shoot at much as I could.

Pretty cool with the exception of the guys annoying kids.

That`s awesome. The man keeps turning the camera just as the kids feed the eagles. I wanted to see them feed them.
