Sy Ong’s images here show three crows attacking a pair of juvenile White-bellied Sea-eagles (Haliaeetus leucogaster) in flight. The latter are obviously inexperienced and made a quick retreat.
White-bellied Sea-eagles are regularly attacked, especially when they are in flight HERE, seldom when they are perching on a branch. Such attacks are often vicious, with the crows nipping the eagles’ wings as seen HERE. When defending their nest the crows are extra aggressive.
