Bald Eagles Play with a Golf Ball

Eagles just wanna have fun! Stumpy Lake Golf Course is right on the banks of Stumpy Lake in Virginia Beach, Virginia. You can imagine how many golf balls are at the bottom of the lake. Just a couple of days after Christmas, these guys were out birdwatching near the lake, which was frozen over. There were two bald eagles out on the ice playing with a golf ball! One guy took still pictures while the other ran video. The game started out as soccer (even though the narration is golf), but it turned into a game of keepaway once they noticed they were being watched. Who knew that bald eagles could be so playful? I guess they just don't want to play with humans. (via Everlasting Blort)

Obviously Canadian birds, no puck so a ball will have to do.
