Man Photographs Incredible Aerial Battle Between Birds

| by Amanda Andrade-Rhoades

David Canales was kayaking in Prince William Sound in Alaska, when he managed to photograph an incredible mid-air battle: a bald eagle attacking a seagull while being attacked by another seagull.

The U.S. Department of the Interior liked the photo so much they shared it on social media and the image has since gone viral. On his Facebook page, Canales explained “this eagle flew right into a nest of these birds and just carried this guy away like nothing.”

When asked by The Huffington Post, the U.S. Department of Interior said the eagle came out on top this time. "The gull above the eagle gave up and the other one wasn't able to free itself," the agency wrote.
