Do not mess with America’s national bird.

An osprey cam from Explore.org captured a rare and intense bald eagle attack on Monday.

The footage shows three osprey chicks sitting in their nest on Hog Island, Maine, while both of their parents are away. Suddenly, a bald eagle can be seen swooping into view with an adult osprey in tow.
