Remember how a bald eagle got stuck in a storm drain last week? It died, but the metaphor for America lives on. If anything, it’s even stronger now.
The Audubon Society has a livestream of an osprey nest in Hog Island, Maine, where this spring viewers were delighted to see the parents, Steve and Rachel, hatch three adorable osprey chicks. After a bald eagle attack earlier this month, they are down to two chicks, because nature could not give the slightest shit…
Is it a drone? Is it a plane? Nope, it’s a trained eagle hunting down an unmanned aerial vehicle like it’s a slow and useless animal that it wants to eat for dinner.
One of the most important programs that the U.S. Air Force is undertaking is far from glamorous and comes with a funny name: Talon HATE. But this podded system will be vital for eliminating communications barriers between the F-22 and F-15C/D fleets, as well as other weapon systems. It’s showing for the first time on…
Kingsley Air National Guard Base, located in Southern Oregon’s Klamath Falls, is home to America’s only F-15C/D training unit, the 173th Fighter Wing. It is sometimes referred to as “K-Falls,” or more often “the land of no slack” due to the incredibly hard curriculum would-be Eagle Drivers must go through to earn…
The F-15SA is the most advanced production F-15 Eagle ever built. Saudi Arabia ordered 84 new build F-15SAs and close to 70 kits to upgrade their existing F-15S fleet to the SA configuration. Just one part of this upgrade is the activation of Eagle’s outboard wing stores stations, which will expand the jet’s already…
The Audubon Society has reported that the oldest tagged Bald Eagle in America has died at the age of 38. The bird has overseen the dramatic recovery for his species in the United States, and is a testament to some of the successes of the environmental movements of the 1970s.
When the F-15 was created, it was created to be a pure air-to-air fighter, with the philosophy of “not a pound for air-to-ground” guiding designers. So how did Israel end up turning their F-15s into deadly long-range multi-role strike aircraft well before the F-15E Strike Eagle became a reality? Here’s how.
Sure, it's a publicity stunt, but what a cool idea (and for a good cause: raising awareness about endangered birds of prey). The BBC, in conjunction with Freedom Conservation, attached a camera to a trained eagle named Darshan, who swooped down from Dubai's Burj Khalifa, filming as he flew.
Archaeologists have identified a remarkable piece of Neanderthal jewelry comprised of eight white-tailed eagle talons. Worn 130,000 years ago, the discovery shows that Neanderthals were capable of making sophisticated ornaments long before modern humans appeared on the scene.
This bald eagle has figured out how to game the system. Instead of expending all the energy necessary to hunt for himself, he just snatches a fish that's already been snared by a fisherman. You go, bald eagle.
And now, simply because it's such an adorably weird juxtaposition, is a scene from a porch in Unalaska, Alaska in the Aleutian Islands. The homeowner walked outside one day, only to discover the animal kingdom mid-coffee klatch. Explains the videographer:
It's crunch time, folks. The time when you set aside everything else in your life that needs doing and spend every waking hour glued to your monitor, hoping — nay, praying — that you'll get a chance to witness the hatching of a brand new baby bald eagle, live on camera.
Have you ever wanted to spy on a bald eagle, watch one hatch, or watch one learn to fly? Then it's time to put everything going on in your life on hold... at least for the next few months. The Decorah Bald Eagle Cam — aka the most powerful time-devouring procrastination tool on the entire internet — is back.
Gulls are utterly fearless, as shown by this remarkable image of a white-tailed eagle under attack.
