I'm slowly putting up the series I got of our #3 female chasing after & locking talons with an intruder. I thought for sure they were going to hit the ground, but they released before then. This was over by Rose Garden Bridge. This is probably the same one that also visited the nest tonight & tussled with the male.

Wow Shelly!!!! I believe I've seen on this forum that the highest form of complement you can give is the saying "you suck" I think it applies here. But in case I've got that wrong I'll just say INCREDIBLE! :D

OMG!!! Shelley, how could you keep from screaming at the other bird "leave her alone!!"?? That is really an incredible series of shots. I'm sure people will be bookmarking that series and coming back to it anytime someone asks about locked talons. Wow!
