New Hampshire news station WMUR News 9 tweeted out this epic video of a bald eagle swimming across a lake in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire after local resident Tyler Blake took the video and sent it to the station. Who knew a bald eagle could swim like that? Check out the video below. 

According to this article from Bird Watching Daily, which I read religiously, eagles will swim if they catch something that is too heavy for them to lift up into the air and fly with.
