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.

Shown here, one of the eagles retuns to the nest after a short flight to chase off an osprey. The attacks have lessened over time as the ospreys seem to realise they're fighting a loosing battle.
