Osprey with fish pursued by crows

Yesterday I happened to be standing on the shore of the Columbia River in the town of Hood River, Oregon, when an Osprey glided by into a strong west wind about 100 ft. above the surface of the water. Suddenly it plunged straight down into the water and came up with a fish. Almost instantly there were several crows swooping and diving at the Osprey, apparently trying to cause it to drop the fish, but to no avail. The Osprey had a firm grip with both feet, and soon the crows gave up the chase.
