Titanic Talons


This week’s photo, taken June 23, 2017 at Richmond Beach Park in Shoreline, WA, features an OSPREY (left) and a BALD EAGLE (right).

What would you do if a large bird of prey, an OSPREY, for example, was dive bombing you from above? Well, if you were a BALD EAGLE in flight, you would likely roll onto your back, in mid-air, and extend your titanic talons skyward. That’s exactly what this eagle did several times as the osprey repeatedly swooped from above.

From my vantage point on the ground, it was quite an exciting air show, and it was probably even more exciting for the aerial combatants.

  1. Yikes! They don’t even have a fish to fight over, but they are fighting anyway.
