One of the bald eagles in Pittsburgh’s Hays neighborhood found himself the victim of an attack while watching over the nest.
Tuesday night a great horned owl once again swooped in and knocked the male bald eagle from his roost.
The male retreated to the nest after the strike, apparently no worse for the wear.READ MORE: Allegheny County Police Investigating Shots Fired In North Versailles
Just last week the owl knocked the male bald eagle from its roost, and all the way to the ground below.
The bald eagle wasn’t injured in that attack.
That was the first time anything like that had happened at the nest, until it happened again yesterday.
Experts say that great horned owls don’t build their own nests, but often take advantage of nests made by other large birds.
Three eggs have been laid recently and are set to hatch sometime this month.MORE NEWS: Fatal Police Shooting In Ohio Hospital Caught On Officer Body Camera
