Description

At this point back in April of this year our eaglets were several weeks old and still rather small. This Osprey was hunting off to the right of the nest. As I was watching the eaglets in the nest, I suddenly heard all this hissing. I looked over and the mother eagles, “Claire” and “Ted” were in hot pursuit of the Osprey trying to convince him to hunt elsewhere while literally zooming right over my head. The father eagle “Jamie” (we have a collaborative nesting site) stayed back at the nest and protected the eaglets. I haven’t seen that Osprey back in the area for several months now. I think he got the message the eagles were giving.
