When you think about Bald Eagles a few things come to mind--- freedom, merica, the king of the skies... And of course a great hunter.  Did you know that they can swim as well? 

"The Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is also our national bird. The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of American, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent."

After a few fly by attempts to pick up a fish the eagle finally gives up and decides to swim it out.
