Man Spots Bald Eagles Playing With A Golf Ball On Frozen Lake

It’s not something many people get to witness but a person in Virginia Beach, Virginia not only witnessed a bald eagle hard at play but they filmed it as well!

According to ViralHog, a spectator was at the Stumpy Lake Natural Area when they noticed the water was completely frozen over.

They said, “I walked out on the dock because I had seen a Bald Eagle fly close by while I was in the parking lot.”

After getting a closer look, they spotted two bald eagles on the ice but that wasn’t all: It seems the eagles were playing with a golf ball!

They said, “I noticed a couple of bald eagles walking on the frozen lake and then saw that one of them was playing with a golf ball, so I proceeded to record some of the action.”

The eagle proceeds to roll the golf ball back and forth across the frozen water, essentially playing fetch with himself!
