Eagle Chases Off Raccoon

A raccoon took advantage of the nest that is not being used and thought it looked like a comfy bed. In fact, the raccoon was sleeping for some time. It would wake up and clean itself and then curl back up again. Suddenly, an eagle went swooping away from the tree towards the highway. Was it perched up in the tree above watching? Maybe. It came in several times and one time it came in from the highway side and put its feet down to attack. Shortly after, it landed on the front branch. It is nice to see the protection of the nest, but it still doesn't explain why we don't see them very often. They should be perching downstream or by the farm catching fish this time of year. Thank you, Keith Byer for making the video.
