He Knowed He Dun Wrong

Eagles and osprey are natural enemies.  Their territories overlap, so there is constant bickering.  This eagle swooped too low over the nesting box where the osprey have set up housekeeping which caused the male to chase him off.  The eagle is looking back over it's shoulder because it expects to be dive-bombed by the osprey.  The osprey chased it well out over the river then broke off the chase and returned to guard the nest.
