The eagle had just fed a fish to the eaglets, which I presume it stole from the osprey. The osprey came to the nest site area andd attacked the parent whereas the parent fought back ..neither was hurt

Lucky sighting i would think, can't be often a person would see an Osprey & eagle quarreling.  :eceek

They already have their eaglets, how old about?

The last photo with the eagle in defense position is really something!

Is the nest in that tree?

How lucky you were CW to be there at that precise moment. How lucky we are too. Those are absolutely wonderful pictures.  :nod2

I am wondering the same as Blue. Is that the nest tree?

It is to the right and in front of the Nest tree that is the branch they would go most often, after feeding the eaglets.
