Follow eagles from the nest to the skies to see what makes these predators so remarkable on NOVA "Eagle Power."
The bald eagle is a North American legend, with a deep connection to Native American cultures and emblematic status that helped it make a remarkable journey back from the brink of extinction.
But what makes this iconic predator so extraordinary? And how does it fit into the global family of some 60 eagle species spread across six continents?
NOVA takes you into the lives of these spectacular birds, following a nest of bald eagle chicks as they face everything from sibling rivalries to insect swarms and learn the skills they’ll need to survive.
Meanwhile, researchers study one special golden eagle, using cutting-edge filming technology to capture her hunting techniques and flight maneuvers.
Learn what makes an eagle and see how these birds’ exceptional adaptations help them survive and thrive in every imaginable habitat.
