Witnessed this surprising event at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge while walking my dogs. An Osprey hunting for fish was savagely attacked by a male goose defending his nesting area. The male goose blindsided the osprey as it hit the water attempting to catch a fish. The goose flailed and pecked holding the osprey underwater. The female goose joined in giving the osprey a few whacks of her own. I was absolutely stunned by the viciousness of the attack and only shot video of the aftermath. At first I thought the geese had killed the osprey, but fortunately the osprey recovered and flew away.

It certainly was a wild scene.
