NATURE | American Eagle | Bald Eagles Hunting | PBS

Duration: 03:09

www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod... It's October in the Upper Mississippi River Valley, and the weather is mild. Waterbirds, about to leave for warmer regions to the South, are a temporary bounty for the bald eagles here. Migrant bald eagles from Canada join the area’s year-round residents to take advantage of the plentiful food. As they pluck coots and mallards from the water, the eagles show off their amazing aerial antics.

"American Eagle" premieres on PBS Sunday, November 16 at 8 p.m. (check local listings). "American Eagle" is part of the 27th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc., SC Johnson, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. For more information, visit www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod...
