watchful

This is the osprey with the damaged wing.
He has lingered here at the lake and is very actively fishing.
However, what has the osprey’s attention is not a fish.
No, it is an adult eagle that is flying across the meadow.
And the osprey knows that the eagle will try to steal any fish the smaller bird might catch.
So the fishing is on hold until the eagle has passed.
