    Those crows are persistent and tough.

    PS don't bother clicking for larger sizes, not much detail but the
    overview is interesting. The most surprising is the third where they
    both take the same pose.

    The hawk must have been raven mad.


    Seriously, it is interesting to see a fairly small bird, not sure what it
    was, harassing an osprey. I plan on visiting the nest much later today, if
    the weather and time constraints permit and see if I can find out.

    Heh, I think the crows are all raving loonies, I see this often, and
    they fight among themselves that way too.

    Small bird trying to get eggs from the osprey nest or defending the
    vicinity of it's own nest? I've heard hawks described as lazy, all they
    really do is glide & swoop, they don't like all that wrestling but crows
    seem to love it.

    They were simply attacking the osprey on its way back to the nest.

    Went there yesterday. Nice overcast day, as close to low tide as I could.
    Took the obligatory shots of herons, plovers and the osprey. enjoyed
    watching a gull pull a horseshoe crab on shore. Nothing photographically
    exciting, but just a nice enjoyable walk.


    For those who live within a reasonable distance.
