One of the more well know bald eagle’s nests in Northern California sits along the Sacramento River in Redding, with multiple enthusiasts and wildlife officials observing the birds year round. With this type of attention, it creates opportunities to see what the everyday life of the eagle is like and to see how it uses the river as a resources for survival.
A video was taken yesterday showing two eagles fighting over one of their most crucial resources in the river – salmon. The video shows the two birds battling it out as they stake claim to the hefty meal. In the end, it wasn’t an all out brawl that the predators of the sky are capable of, but it shows the beautiful movement of nature right in the middle of Redding.
