I watched a large eagle grasp a large salmon in the sound 40 miles north of Seattle. It couldn't/wouldn't let go and it tried to fly but could not. I was trolling for almon and watched it swim for over 1 hoour with its wings. amazing. It made shore and had to fight off two large eagles for land and fish. It lost the catch, but lived. amazing swim, I'd never have believed it. tired wings!!!!!
