    Excellent catch Coop (by you and the Osprey :smile:) .

    Welcome to the Cafe!!
     
  5. Now that is a situtation no one has an answer for. Litle birds chaseing big ones. I have watched King birds harress eagles and even have a photo of one riding on an eagles back. I guess the RWBB, Blue Jay, Baltmore oriole, all will harress eagles and hawks. This was a good catch Coop and I bet you will get it again if your out there taking photos.

    Here's another bold one Lou. Mockingbirds seem to have no fear.

  7. Like I said Coop you will see this a lot and also like I said no one can tell why and I have ask experts in the eagle field which I do some work with and also a rehab center I volunteer at. Little birds are strange. Take a look at the link below, I was involved with in a rehab and a release back to the wild and note the toss into the air at the end. Out of nowhere the little birds come:biggrin:
    BTW Very good catch.

  8. LOL, that's a good one. I keep wishing I'll get one of the hummingbirds chasing the larger birds away from their feeders. But so far I've not had tha camera in my arms when that happens.

    Great shot.

    Thanks for sharing
