Freedom Loving Crow Hitches a Ride on a Majestic Bald Eagle [Photos]


We’ve talked at length how it’s amazing when photographer capture the incredible moment when animal very casually hitch a ride on another and this time we might have the best example of this phenomenon… ever.

California-based Phoo Chan, who just happens to be one of the best wildlife photographer we’ve ever seen, this time, nailed it by capturing this crow taking a mid-flight pit stop on the back of a majestic bald eagle.

Chan 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.”
