March 3, 2014:
Two male bald eagles caused quite a stir in a Portland, Ore. neighborhood on March 3, 2014. Originally thought to be entangled in twine together, they were actually engaged in a territorial clash that lasted for several hours. This is normal behavior for bald eagles, which will defend their territories when challenged, especially during spring breeding season. ODFW, Audubon Society of Portland and others went to the scene to untangle the birds, but the bald eagles eventually flew away on their own.
