Yesterday while at Circle Beach boat launch in Madison, we saw an Osprey power dive on a soaring Bald Eagle that the osprey felt encroached on its air space above its nest. The bald eagle executed a nimble barrel role to extend its talons skyward. I have never seen an eagle move that fast even when chasing osprey to steal their fish. It was over in a split second and the eagle casually left the scene of the confrontation. Russ Smiley caught it in a series of pictures that really capture the moment, and which he posted on eBird.
