I got this image a month or so ago at a local Osprey hot spot. It is safe to say that Barred Owls and Ospreys are not the best of friends.

The Ospreys took turns buzzing this poor Owl when it came out from the cypress trees and into the open. It reminded me a lot of King Kong with the fighter planes buzzing by him. This went on for 20-30 seconds and when he had time, the Owl took off and flew back to the trees. This alarmed his mate and she even came out to the edge of the trees to try to take some notice away from him so he could retreat back.

Wow, great shot. Sharp and lots of action. Maybe a little blown under the wing, but tough to get such a fast moving confrontation.

Oh it defiantly is. I was taking pictures of the Owl when the Osprey attacked so my exposure was off.

that is a really cool action shot!
I know that here the owls take over the hawk nests. Perhaps the Osprey didnt want that to happen.

Wow, great capture, love the claws out pose and the look of sheer hatred and determination on the Osprey.

Ahh good point. That could be why they were so hostile. Thank you
