The Eagle and the Great Horned Owl

We have been watching the eagles' nest on the lighthouse road for many years. Sometimes we see babies and sometimes just adults perched nearby. This weekend, we saw a great horned owl in the nest, while an adult eagle sat only a few trees away.

If you look right in the middle of the nest, just to the right of the main tree trunk, you can see the owl's head.

We had read that the nest had been taken over by the great-horned owls. Curious. Maybe it is a lease situation. Maybe the landlord is also serving as security guard?
