California-based photographer Phoo Chan captures a sequence of crow landing on eagle in midair. California-based photographer Phoo Chan caught a sequence of photographs showing a crow land on top of an eagle for a ride mid-flight.
Phoo Chan is a gifted bird photographer with a good track record, here we present you one of his once-in-a-lifetime series of photos.
It is a crow riding on the back of a mid-flight bald eagle- check it out below.
The California based photographer says, “Crows are known for aggressively harassing other raptors that are much bigger in size when spotted in their territories and usually these ‘intruders’ simply retreat without much fuss.”
“However, 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.”
