Video: Bald eagle plays with Bangor pigeons

I was eating lunch at Bagel Central in downtown Bangor when I saw a bald eagle fly by the window. Cars stopped on Central Street as the eagle flew back and forth over the Kenduskeag Stream, soaring close to the walls of Bangor Savings Bank and the University of Maine Museum of Art. The eagle disturbed the flocks pigeons perching on nearby roofs over and over again. I ran out of the restaurant and took this footage with my smart phone.
