Deadly 60: Battle of Britain

Deadly 60: Battle of Britain
To really see how eagles fly, Steve climbs into a wind tunnel in England with a Tawny eagle. As the wind gets stronger and the bird begins to fly Steve explains how the wings and its different feathers are used by the bird to help it soar, swoop and dive when attacking its prey. Then in Scotland, Steve takes to the water where he entices a White Tailed eagle to take a dead fish from the water behind the fishing boat.
