King of the Skies
The bald eagle - king of the skies. Not. Often, when going about minding it's own business, it will be mobbed and harassed by crows or, as in this case, red-winged blackbirds. I've seen them swarm an eagle while it was in the middle of a dive to get a fish, which must be very distracting. And some of those birds must hurt because I have seen the eagles (and osprey) go through some amazing manuevers to avoid being pecked.
