Generally, crows are known to be the assholes of the bird kingdom. They bully other animals and generally give off a creepy vibe. This crow appears to be trying to reshape his species' image and just did the most patriotic thing possible -- it rode a bald eagle.
California photographer Phoo Chan spotted the two birds and flight and snapped this set of photos that can best be described as "America, Fuck Yeah!"
It's a pretty ballsy move on the crow's part, considering that the bald eagle could have easily flipped around and made a lunch out of the smaller bird. The only thing missing from the photo series is an American flag background and a Lee Greenwood "God Bless the U.S.A." soundbite.
