Peep ... peep ... peep!
The insistent calls from the sky called my attention to some unusual aerial combat that was taking place right in front of my cabin.
At first I thought it was the cry of a young osprey calling for food from a parent bird, but no, it was coming from three birds locked in what seemed mortal combat just above the surface of Watts Bar Lake; a bald eagle diving and maneuvering to avoid the combined attack of an osprey and a crow.
It is that time of year and birds are very territorial when it comes to nesting sites.
