I love watching nature. I especially love when animals do things you might not expect them to do as you'll see in this video.

The eagle you'll see is attempting to retrieve a dead muskrat from the water. After numerous attempts the bird succeeds in a way we are not used to seeing. This video was taken at a place called Mallard Lake.

As I watched this, I couldn't help but think of our wonderful country. Perhaps in part because the eagle is our national symbol. And we, like this determined bird, have an incredible way of getting things done. We may fail a time or two, but we always seem to be able to get the job done.
