The stupid eagles are always attacking the osprey, and although the osprey can twist and turn to keep the eagle from stooping, it is alweays touch and go. Just now I saw two rotten old eagles gang up on a (vituous and brave) osprey. The osprey had to drop its prey in order to make an escape, and an eagle swooped down to steal the fish (dunno if the bird got it or if it sank). Eagles are stupid but powerful. Osprey are all things good, and they never wander around the lake making unsuccessful grabs at fish over and over again like some large black and white birds I could mention.
