One of the explanations I've heard is that the majestic eagle saw the leather glove on the pitcher's hand and it may have looked like the leather glove of his handler. Trying to land on a baseball glove wouldn't be as easy as landing on his handler's close-fitting glove! Makes sense to me. Still - the American Eagle is our treasure and we love them - no matter where they land!

Gorgeous, noble bird.  I enjoyed that video.  It was playing at gym today on one of the sports channels.  Sports must have been slow, because they kept replaying it.  Lol

 

they are huge, arent they?   I admired the players reaction.he was great with Mr Eagle

@jannabelle-

I never thought of that! Then after several attempts, maybe her realized, Oh, this is not my guy's glove! and waited patiently on the side to be told what to do nextSmiley HappyWoman Happy
