This time of year it's common for people to eagle watch, whether it be on a live cam or at an eagle viewing location. Typically the eagles are at a far off distance, perched atop a tree branch or resting in their nests. For the North Shore Football Club in Vancouver; however, eagle viewing took on a whole new dimension. The team was holding soccer practice when an eagle landed and began kicking a soccer ball around, even jumping on it. According to The Vancouver Sun, Club President Stuart Ince said that the eagle didn't make the soccer tryout since he lacked the ball skills they were looking for.
