As I rounded the corner of the pond I could hear an Osprey calling, and finally spotted him perched with a view of the pond and river beyond.
Then I saw what he was calling about: Bald Eagle on a fast approach. All the other birds I had seen as I approached were gone.
The Eagle landed a few trees over from the Osprey.
The Osprey wasn’t interested in any competition and buzzed the Eagle.
I thought the Eagle would stand his ground — but I guess he wasn’t interested in a rumble right then.
I didn’t see the Eagle again; the Osprey made a few menacing laps around the pond with his claws out, ready for something!
