Bird hitches a lift on the back of an eagle

Most of us would love to grow wings and fly away but this lazy bird decided not to use its flying abilities and instead hitched a lift on the back of an eagle.

Stunning pictures show the eagle resting on a branch in Taipei, Taiwan, as it tried to eat a snake.

A smaller black drongo bird then swoops down from the sky before landing on the back of the Crested Serpent Eagle as wildlife photographer Liu Chia-Pin was taking pictures.

I've never seen a Crested Serpent Eagle before. They're gorgeous!

I saw a bird hitch a ride on a Bald Eagle once when I was in BC. I think it was escorting it away from it's nest.

Yeah I don't think it landed it was trying to get it away from it's nest.  I've seen seagulls and crows do the same thing to bald eagles.
