RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A warm day with barely any clouds over central North Carolina got a little busier Tuesday afternoon when a bald eagle went looking for lunch.

It was right around lunch time over Jordan Lake Tuesday when photojournalist Dan West, with WAVY sister station WNCN, captured a bald eagle soaring over the water.

Moments later the bald eagle swooped toward the water and emerged with a fish for lunch.

The bald eagle was nearly extinct in North America 40 years ago, but now thrive across the country and in North Carolina.
