Bald Eagles Steal Food

Eagles are famous birds of prey; however, they actually get a lot of their meals by scavenging or stealing the kill of other animals. In fact, this thievery is a big reason why Ben Franklin argued against the bird being used as the United State's national symbol.

Bonus fact: The largest bald eagle nest was 9.5 feet wide and 20 feet high, weighing more than two tons!
