When an eagle spots a fish near the surface of the water, it approaches it's prey in a low glide and snatches the fish out of the water with a quick swipe of it's talons. Eagle talons have a special locking mechanism; when their talons hit the prey, they close instantly and cannot be reopened until the eagle pushes down against another solid object or surface.
