Fox Attacks Bald Eagle Nest

This is the epic moment when a sly fox attempted to get into a bald eagle nest and got more than he bargained for.


After the initial scuffle, the mother bald eagle calls for back up from her mate.

This nest is on the side of a cliff on Catalina Island, not high up in a tree. This makes it easier for other animals to access the nest.

According to Explore.org, the wing tag is for scientific purposes. These are wild eagles.
