Saw an Eagle swimming towards shore today. It was about 250 feet out, and it almost made it to shore before giving up, or it's prey escaped. Whatever he had was quite heavy, as he was barely able to keep his head and wings above water - it was swimming / doing overhead breast strokes at a very rapid pace for several minutes. Looked on youtube and saw a couple of eagle swimming videos, but this eagle was making an Olympic effort compared to those. Wished he had made it to shore... Rich.
