Fisheries Officers capture incredible video of bald eagle swimming in BC

It’s not clear if it was butterfly or freestyle, but a bald eagle recently executed a gold medal swim in British Columbia.

Department of Fisheries and Oceans workers not only spotted the big bird cruising the water, but took some amazing video, too.

“Our #FisheryOfficers see some amazing things when patrolling BC’s waters, but few things can impress like this powerful #BaldEagle swimming against the current as it catches its #salmon dinner!” the department tweeted Thursday.

Bravo, bold — and well fed — bird.
