so I took a road trip from canada to america and literally minutes after crossing the american border I watched a bald eagle fly past

there are some countries that live up to their stereotypes and theres america

My face looks gross today so I’ll post a tummy selfie instead lol


It’s not everyday that we get to see a crow ride on the back of a soaring bald eagle, but that’s exactly the awesome sight captured by California-based bird photographer Phoo Chan. While crows are known for harassing raptors spotted flying near their nesting territory, that didn’t appear to be the case here. According to Chan:

“…in this frame the crow did not seem to harass the bald eagle at such close proximity and neither did the bald eagle seem to mind the crow’s presence invading its personal space. What made it even more bizarre was that the crow even made a brief stop on the back of the eagle as if it was taking a free scenic ride and the eagle simply obliged.”

At one point the joyriding crow even assumed a pose that looks remarkably like the mighty “Crane” stance from The Karate Kid:
