Brief Directions

Description

Nesting bald eagles will occasionally leave the nest, do a close-by fly-around, and perch quite near the nest. On this day, the nest was suddenly buzzed by a juvenile and another adult bald eagle, prompting the display shown. Within seconds, the mate came out of nowhere and a WWI-like "dogfight" proceeded above the nest until the intruders were chased off. I will likely never forget the fearsome sound of this screaming eagle.
