Bald Eagle Territory Dispute

Jordan Lake. This morning, two pairs of adult bald eagles set about trying to decide who owned what part of the lake for the coming breeding season. The first couple, down lower edge of the video, is from the east side of the lake – the other pair is from the west side. My understanding is in these kind of disputes, females go after females and the males go after males. You can sometimes see in the video the size differences. The constant squeaky chirping is the bald eagles talking.
