Eagles Tangled at the Talons

Occurred on December 31, 2021 / Sooke, British Columbia, Canada

Info from Licensor: "On the eve of December 21st, 2021, I discovered two Bald eagles in my backyard. They were engaged with one another. This, of course, was such a rare encounter. I was very concerned for their welfare and safety but I really didn't know what to do for them. I took video with my cell phone and cut the taping off several times in an attempt to find some help. I phoned my neighbors asking for help and they tried to contact WildArc, a local wildlife conservation facility. I continued to take video of the two eagles. I was unsure if this was a mating ritual or just a fight. I did notice blood so I am assuming that the two were perhaps fighting over food. After some time I was able to get them to disengage while I approached to put a towel over their heads! Well, the approach worked because both of them separated their claws from one another and flew off! No broken wings and perhaps I stepped in at a good time."
