Bald eagles are territorial birds and will defend their nests and hunting territories fiercely. In some cases, this can lead to aggressive behavior, including eagle fights. These fights can be incredibly dramatic, with the birds locking talons and spiraling towards the ground. While they may look deadly, eagle fights are rarely fatal, and both birds usually survive.
