Information about the shot or species
Bald Eagles and Osprey often compete for the same food and nesting resources. Given the opportunity, they will steal fish from each other. The eagle's larger size gives them a slight advantage, especially in this instance since a mated pair of eagles are defending their nest and nestlings from an Osprey who ventured too close to their nest. This bird is striking a convincing threat posture and calling loudly to warn the Osprey to back off or face the consequences. It worked, and the Osprey quickly left the area.
