'He's Comin'!' Bald Eagle Swoops for Fish in Ontario

Nate Parenteau and his friends were out fishing on the waters of Lac Seul in Ontario, Canada, when, alongside some more traditional catches of the day, they also caught footage of a bald eagle grabbing some dinner from the waters.

In footage posted to YouTube on July 25, one of Parenteau’s friends tosses a fish into the water to attract the eagle, which they had noticed flying around the area.

Parenteau explained that having hit their “daily limit” of catches, they decided it was time they “donated a meal to the eagle.”

It’s not the first time Parenteau has captured video of an eagle grabbing some grub: he previously posted footage of one swooping into a snowy landscape to pick up a fish. Credit: Nate Parenteau via Storyful
