Watch Bald Eagle Land on Shoulder of Unfazed Seattle Mariners Pitcher

A flyover of four Air Force jets comes over Target Field after the national anthem as the Seattle Mariners and the Minnesota Twins line up prior to the Twins home-opener baseball game Thursday

You could say that Seattle Mariners pitcher James Paxton is, well, "unflappable".

"I just have to be not standing alone in the field", Paxton said. Rather than running around, Paxton just stood there until the eagle left and chose to set on the ground again. No confirmation, but Paxton might have stolen eggs from this eagle. "And then I thought, 'OK, if I can stand up slowly, maybe it'll just rest on my shoulder". "The talons, they were kind of sharp on my back, but I don't have any scratches I believe". "I was just standing there trying not to panic".

Eagles by nature will seek the highest point as a landing spot. The raptor's handler immediately came running onto the field with his big leather arm sleeve and the bird finally cooperated and stopped going after Paxton.

Paxton had a rocky first start of the season, allowing six runs in 4 2/3 innings to the Indians, but perhaps this is a sign of a few goose-egg outings to come.
