A question for Jan:
  I'd be very interested in knowing details about the inter-action between the Golden Eagle and the Bald Eagle.  In what ways, specifically, were they inter-acting?
Did they talon lock mid-air or was there some other inter-action involved?  Since I first reported this observation(Golden-Bald Eagles talon locking) back in Feb. I've been trying to compile some data on how common these intra-specific inter-actions are.

3/15  As Andy reported great views of an immature GOLDEN EAGLE  interacting
with an immature Bald Eagle and being harassed by a Red-tailed Hawk right
over the River Quest boat in Lyme.  Great chance to compare sizes and great
day to be on the water.  Also, FOY for the boat, 2 Osprey checking out their
nesting sites.  Horned Grebe, couple Common Loons, and several Great
Cormorants still present as well as good numbers of Tree Swallows.
