A bald eagle and a Canada goose. Lisa Bell taked the pictures. Eagle is the common name for many large birds of prey. Most of the 60 species of eagle are from Eurasia and Africa.

Geese are waterfowl of the family Anatidae. This group comprises the genera Anser and Branta.
Bell grabbed her camera.

The eagle appeared to swoop down from out of nowhere with its talons ready to grip onto its prey.

The goose appeared to be a little slow off the mark flapping its feathers. As it tried to make a run for it.

The eagle pounced on top of the big bird. Eagles stand on top of its long neck.

‘It was very still. There was no more noise coming out of him,’ Bell told Global News. ‘But as it turns out, I think he was probably playing dead.’

Both Canada geese and bald eagles are migratory birds with habitats that extend across the continent, which means that it’s hard to know where either of these animals were born.

Geese can, in fact, be found in every single U.S. state and Canadian province at one point throughout the year, while bald eagles are more abundant in parts of Canada at times than anywhere in the U.S. except for Alaska.
