A sequence of images captured last year at Kitsap, Washington by photographer Phoo Chan. Sez he:

Crows are known for aggressively harassing other raptors that are much bigger in size when spotted in their territories and usually these ‘intruders’ simply retreat without much fuss. However, in this frame the crow did not seem to harass the bald eagle at such close proximity and neither did the bald eagle seem to mind the crow’s presence invading its personal space. What made it even more bizarre was that the crow even made a brief stop on the back of the eagle as if it was taking a free scenic ride and the eagle simply obliged.

A fish eagle spotted at the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania by wildlife photographer Mark Sheridan-Johnson, who sez:

In nine years of being a safari guide I would never expect to see this unheard of behaviour. I saw the fish eagle on the sand bank with something in its beak. I noticed it wasn’t a fish but was in fact a Nile crocodile. The eagle quickly took off but I got a couple of shots of it flying away. I think this eagle could be a lone individual who has learnt how to hunt for crocodiles.

It certainly knew what it was doing.
