Incoming Flight

Two bald eagles aim for the same post in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. According to Klaus Nigge, who wrote the January 2015 National Geographic story “First Bird,” the one that lands first in such squabbles usually vacates the perch in order to avoid being raked by the incoming bird’s open talons.
