This afternoon a rogue bald eagle entered the marsh area sending our resident eagle pair into a huge frenzy. The male eagle (seen here) took off from his tree screeching like crazy and ran off the intruder. I never knew eagles could make sounds like I heard from this one as he blasted across the sky in full chase mode.
He definitely looks outraged!
He was not happy at all Deb.
He definitely meant business! And that’s a great shot!
Oh he absolutely meant business for sure Lee!

Thanks much for the reblog!
Che volo stupendo!!! Bravissimo Phil.
Great shot Phil. Our sea eagles honk like geese. Very confusing.
Thanks Andrew, this guy was squeaking, squawking and chirping all over the place and you could hear him from a way offs.
Stunning BIF shot Phil.
Thank you Jan glad you liked it.
That’s one angry bird! Perfect capture!
He was really hacked off and proceeded to let not just the other eagle but the entire marsh area know about it.
No joke, I had someone come by soon after and ask me what all the bird racket was about. They heard it from quite a ways off. I guess he got his message across too because I didn’t see the offending eagle after that.
That is very nice to hear. I am glad they have a protector that watches over the area. Awesome things I am learning!
He did not care for the other eagle coming into his neighborhood uninvited. Thanks for checking this out Erv!
Brilliant picture, Phil! He is so impressive!
Thank you Maggie it was an impressive sight, he made a couple of swoops and low passes near my location and it was thrilling for sure.
Wow. That’s the fierce protector and defender that we all respect and admire (and not the fish thief that you feature from time to time). Wonderful action shot.
There were ospreys fishing in the area at the time. I wonder what would have happened if one caught a fish just as this guy was flying around? Would the eagle give up the chase to go try to grab the fish? Maybe… 🙂
His screams I can almost hear through your great photo! ▲
Thank you so much for that very nice compliment! 😀
Fantastic shot Phil!!
Thanks much I appreciate you checking it out!
I loved the added intensity.
Amazing capture, Phil!
Great photo of the bird in flight. That takes great skill and patience. You should to a tutorial post on how you get those shots. Maybe you have and I need to look around on your site.
Wow! Just Wow!!
Angry, but still beautiful!
