A pair of bald eagles defend their nest and two young eaglets from an osprey at York County Sports Complex in Yorktown, Virginia. The eagles took over the osprey's nest and enlarged it this year.

Here the eagle is shown coming back down to the nest after chasing away the osprey. It must be tiring work as the osprey bothered the eagles on and off all day long.
