Thumbs up Canada Goose & Eagle Battle FIGHT!

Any Canadian knows that the mighty Canada goose isn’t a bird to mess with.

That’s why when an American Bald Eagle attacked one on Vancouver Island on Friday, the goose defended our national pride with honour. Photographer and camper Lisa Bell managed to capture the entire battle on camera, and to be honest, things initially looked a little bleak for our winged soldier.

The battle begins with the eagle perched on top of the goose, the eagle is a bird of prey, after all, while the goose is not.

But even though all seems lost, the eagle quickly learns that its been lured into a trap!

The eagle went to adjust itself, and the goose’s back end came up,” “The eagle was having a hard time keeping the goose down, and he managed to break free.”

The goose immediately bolted for a nearby pond with the eagle in hot pursuit.

With the battle quickly shifting from land to sea, strategies changed. The goose adapted by diving under the water just as the eagle swooped overhead.

Knowing the scales had shifted, the eagle regrouped on a nearby perch and waited for reinforcements to arrive. After eyeing the goose for about 20 minutes, the American bird abandoned the battle field.


I can only imagine the noise these 2 magnificent birds were making when the battle was happening!
