Eagles can be some of nature’s most graceful animals, but this Russian eagle does not fit that description.

The eagle in this video attempted to land in its nest, but it got tripped up by a branch. Luckily for us there was a camera there to capture this landing fail.

After crashing the eagle just sat there for a little bit as it seemed to ponder its mishap. The bird of prey seemed uninjured, so we can just laugh at one of the least graceful landings of all time.
