Just when you thought you've seen it all, something like this comes along.

Am I the only one that didn't know that bald eagles can swim? In a video taken in Wolfeboro, NH by Tyler Blake and posted by WMUR, you can see a bald eagle swimming to shore.

And he's not just swimming - he's doing a very dramatic breast stroke, and doing it very well.

I feel like this guy would crush me in a swim race. He might even be able to take Michael Phelps. Look at how good he is, and how fast he's going!

So of course I had to do some digging on the topic, and I was pretty surprised to learn that this isn't the only bald eagle that knows how to swim.

Apparently, bald eagles are known swimmers...which sure is news to me.

Were you as surprised to see this as I was? Let us know, with a comment on the Facebook post!
