Interesting footage. Wonder if the eagle is trying to predate the stork or just see it off. I'm inclined to think the latter.

Looks like predation attempt. If the eagle were just seeing it off it would just be chasing it and harassing it. This video shows it actually lunge at the stork and trying to grab it. There was a David Attenborough program which showed eagles hunting cranes over the Himalayas.
