Bald Eagle fishing
From my winter trip to Iowa.

With sharp eyesight a Bald Eagle swoops down to collect its prey while fishing.
With legs and talons outstretched, a large adult bald eagle comes in close to shore to snatch a fish from the water.

A Bald Eagle can spot prey from several hundred feet above the water while flying, soaring and gliding above. Their eyesight is at least 4 times sharper than the human eye plus they can focus forwards and to the sides at the same time.
