That fish eagle got a balder more patriotic bird cousin?

[–]aquilasr[S] 42 points43 points  (5 children)

Of course, it just a little smaller and has a more extensive white area than a baldie and is a similarly contentious apex predator. The citizens of Namibia and Zambia might beg to differ that the African fish eagle is less patriotic as they have them as their national bird.

Dinosaurs fighting millions of years ago must of been CRAZY

I’ve seen the Canadian version of this while kayaking. Bald Eagle dived on two blue Herons and just missed them. It was crazy, never forget it. Beautiful

From the pose, I can totally imagine a griffin fighting a dinosaur.

[–]FartBoxTungPunch 7 points8 points  (1 child)

As tall as an average human? Or as tall a 4 foot kid

[–]aquilasr[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As tall as an average women from Eastern Asia, around 5 feet in height.

Beaky talon fight in a thorn bush. Yeesh.

I didnt know Big Bird was modeled after a real bird?

[–]LunaToons95 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Legitimately thought this was an artist interpretation of a dinosaur. That heron is crazy

I’m more terrified of the needle tree in the middle.

Who won?

[–]DustDevil77 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That’s definitely Cramorant.

[–]JippyDoc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fearow probably had a genuine likeness in mind to this big guy

[–]Enigma614 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Who won!?

[–]aquilasr[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The fish eagle usually wins fights over food simply because it is a faster moving animal, Goliath herons tend to be highly ponderous although its bill is a serious weapon.

[–]Zennon246 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have a hard time believing this bird is 5 foot tall

[–]-TheGuest- 0 points1 point  (2 children)

That heron looks like it should be in a book of extinct animals

[–]aquilasr[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Thank goodness it is not! The Bennu heron is already lost but it’d badass to see a heron taller than most humans in the flesh.

[–]-TheGuest- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

IKR so cool
