(If you haven’t seen this on Facebook…)

As I mentioned a week ago, a pair of bald eagles took over a red-tailed hawks’ nest in Harmar Township early this month.  Problem is, the hawks were still building the nest and they weren’t going to give it up easily.

Last week after continuous red-tail dive-bombing and harassment the eagles relinquished the nest to the hawks.  There was a brief period of calm, then the eagles fought back.

On Sunday Steve Gosser captured their battle and posted it on Facebook’s Bald Eagles in Western Pennsylvania page.  By now his photo’s been shared more than 460 times.

Battle of the air!  Clash of the Titans!

Who will win?
