Interesting, I have never seen an eagle do that. I was hoping that this wasn't in an area with crocodiles.

I actually experienced that while salmon fishing in New Brunswick. The Bald Eagle swooped into the river near me and grabbed a huge salmon and couldn't lift off. I was amazed to see it swimming to shore. I told a game warden friend and was told the talons lock when they grab something and can't release until they can put the item down and release the pressure. I was tol;d they can actually be drowned by a large salmon.

That is why I miss camping so much and would love to do it full-time. So many things to see!
