Two weeks ago, I watched a bald eagle steal a fish from an osprey.

At the time, I suspected that the eagle was one that was reported nesting several towns away. Yesterday, I stopped by the reported eagle nest location and was able to spend some time with the camera. It was difficult to get much in the way of decent shots as the leaves are starting to pop and even with 700mm on FX, it's a long stretch with big crops.

One of the eagles soaring overhead. Note the notch in the feather at the outer end of the right wing.

Looking at shots from 2 weeks ago, this appears to be the same eagle that stole the fish from the osprey. The perp has been ID'd!
