The world-wide famous eagle fledglings of Decorah, Iowa receive catered meals from mom and dad who dip into he nearby fish hatchery all day along.

But smaller birds raising their own families are suspicious of the fledglings and dive bomb them, trying to drive them away.

Some viewers responding to my video believe the small bird attacking the Decorah eaglet fledgling

is a male Baltimore Oriole and not a goldfinch. They could be right. I thank them for their input.
