A Golden Eagle fancies a Chamois for dinner - but the animal has other ideas .......
Check out the wing changes during the initial flight/attack.   An amazing piece of video by Terra Mater.

It was either a dumb or a very hungry eagle.

That is insane!  I can't even imagine how much altitude they lost in that short struggle!  I wonder how long that eagle sat there getting its wits back about it before it flew off!  Thanks for sharing!

You are welcome.  And just look at how much speed & height the bird washed off in the initial attack.
Amazing alright.

Its no wonder, why our majestic birds of the land, our wonderful raptors, are so well protected.

Two Alberta eagles were found, in two separate incidents, to have been shot, and left.

Disturbing.

Wow, I'm amazed the eagle survived the various crashes. The chamois is lucky, but was very much in control too. Survival of the fittest. Thank you, great capture!

Yeah,  the eagle must have been pretty hungry and/or determined .
I love the pre-attack phase where you can see all the complex wing adjustments.  Nature at it's best

birds of prey are extremely territorial birds. will attack anything near their nesting ground even when not nesting.
