Fantastic clip! Up at our camp, the eagles sat on the osprey nest for a long time and would not let them nest. They did finally give up the feud and ospreys laid eggs and carried on.

Eagles eat them or just harass them?

Link - from what I've seen back in the UP, eagles do tend to harass osprey while on their nests. In this case I'm guessing old eagle was hungry.

Here in Virginia, I watched two Redtail Hawks attack an Osprey nest.

It was not pretty. The Osprey kicked their ass.
