_RK_7413 - Version 2 eagle osprey chase 2014

The eagle jumped Ace the osprey as the smaller bird lifted his fish from the river.  For about 90 seconds the eagle pursued Ace, trying to get the osprey to drop his fish.  An eagle will ram an osprey then catch the fish midair if the osprey drops it.  Ace finally flipped up on one wing and dove between two closely growing trees, his fish still in his talons.  The eagle sulked off down river.
