JL Eagle Nest Report: Ranger Nest, 2 photos 3/30/2018

Mom Ranger and her two chicks were waiting for some fish.
 
 
Then mom Ranger saw an osprey flying in with a fish for its mate.
Mom Ranger dashed for the osprey and literally banged into it, hoping to get the osprey to drop its fish.
This is a favorite tactic of bald eagles – let the osprey catch the fish, then steal the fish for the eaglets.
The plucky osprey hung onto its prize and dashed between two trees where mom Ranger couldn’t follow it.
Mom Ranger was quite grumpy.  Not everything goes the eagle’s way.
