Thanks, Redhawk -- great video. That last one really had to work to carry off the fish!

One of my favorite wildlife viewings was an osprey & a raven, years ago at Riddle Lake in Yellowstone. I first saw the osprey, in flight with fish, being harassed by a raven. It attacked so viciously that the osprey dropped the fish, which the raven caught in midair. Of course the osprey now had its talons free & wasn't so weighed down, so it lit after the raven. The raven fled into the woods down the lake, with osprey in hot pursuit. I don't know the outcome but just the part I saw was dramatic.
