Eagles: Observing Behaviour

As the eagles move into the Fraser valley, abandoned eagle nests are being claimed by eagle pairs. Concurrently, significant interaction between eagles can be observed. Yesterday I was able to observe two eagles inter-locking talons while in flight. It is speculated that this kind of interaction can be a form of play, pair-bonding or aggression. As the one eagle had nesting material and subsequently both eagles were seen at a nest, it seems likely that this was a pair-bonding activity. The following is the series of photos I was able to take.
