Since the eagles are nesting they are very protective of their chicks. It stands to reason the eagles will try to scare off anything they see as a potential danger to their chicks.

It must be totally awesome to be that close to eagles even with the possibility of being scratched by one of them.

They'll have to get Sarah Palin to go back up there and blow them away with her hunting bazooka.

I just saw one of these eagles today when I was getting my mail. It was sitting on top of a street light looking right down at the parking lot. The other day I saw one of these birds flying into their next with either a rat or a squirrel in its claws. There's one eagle that waits outside the local sushi bar and if you're brave you can feed him by hand...
