An Angry Blue Jay

I saw an eagle in a tree.  As I began taking pictures, I saw a small bird attacking the eagle.
It was a very unhappy blue jay.  There must have been a nest nearby.

The eagle was many times the size of the jay, but the jay was undaunted.  Still, the eagle stood its ground.  I had to leave after ten minutes, so I didn't get to see the outcome.  Did the eagle leave?  
Or did it find the nest and the eggs or chicks?

That is a brave Blue Jay!

I usually think of Blue Jays as pretty fierce...but to attack an eagle? Must have been desperate to keep him away from the nest. One bite of that eagle's beak and bye bye blue jay!

The two of them do seem to be having an argument. Great series.
