Bald eagle snags osprey chick right from nest

Live cameras captured a bald eagle attack when two osprey parents were away from their nest of three chicks Monday at dusk on Hog Island, Maine. One of the Osprey parents suddenly enters the scene, trying to defend the nest, but can’t match the speed and power of the eagle, who snags one of the chicks.
