    This Osprey attacked the Eagle nest for 10 minutes. What a show to watch. Here are a few shot's (mid-day light was a bit harsh)

    Incredible shots! Could you tell the Osprey's intent? General harassment of a food competitor? The eaglets? A fish in the nest? TF

    Eagle had just returned with a fish when 3 Ospreys flew in just behind the Eagle. I suspect the Eagle stole the fish from one of the Osprey's, I'm thinking it's the one in my pics. Most every day the Ospreys come by the nest but keep their distance but this day Mr. Osprey was not happy!

    I've seen a few sequences of an Osprey stealing fish from an Eagle, but never the other way. - TF
