Boucher posted the video of the Bald eagle walking around her backyard on Facebook saying in the post, “Look at what was in our yard this morning. Crazy!”

In the 44 second video, the Bald eagle can be seen from out Boucher’s window. It takes a few steps and stops several times before ultimately flying off.
