It looked like fish.

PITTSBURGH A female bald eagle defended her nest and the three eggs inside it from an intruding raccoon late Wednesday night.

The video showed the eagle being startled by the raccoon before she sprung up and spread her wings. After only a few seconds, the raccoon fled the nest and the mother settled back down.

It's not believed any of the three eggs inside were harmed.

The 5 1/2-year-old female laid the first egg a week ago. All of the eggs are expected to hatch in late March.

The nest is about 100 yards away from an earlier nest that collapsed after the two eagles arrived in the area last spring and raised a chick.

Bald eagle pairs are active on two additional sites in Allegheny County. More than 200 nest sites have been reported in the commonwealth.

Don't mess with mama!
