For Eagles, Spring Means Courtship Ritual Called ‘Cartwheeling’

Love is in the air. For ducks and geese, it’s easy to find a safe space and partner up. Eagles have a slightly more complicated ritual called cartwheeling. The courtship involves a male and female eagle flying into the thermos where they grasp talons then glide in dramatic fashion back down, then break apart when they’re nearing the ground. Afterwards they go to the nest to mate.
