Agree, on our creek and on base the eagles are taking the offensive, saw a family of four eagles last couple days flying around, That was cool too.LOL.
I've seen enough over the last three days to convince me that the Ospreys are being pushed out by the Bald Eagles. The warfare started in the spring but now we're seeing the eagles on total offense and all over the island. Never happened in my lifetime..
I just minutes ago watched the largest eagle I've ever seen swoop in and land on a branch about 40 feet directly over my head. Huge bird. They are chasing the ospreys now as much or more than the ospreys are chasing them. We've got two or three attacking our ospreys on a regular basis now..and I bet the osprey fledglings have all become eagle snacks, explaining why we see so few.
