It seems the falcon was busy attacking an immature ring-billed gull when the commotion attracted Oprah.

With the osprey nest a mere 100 yards away, and with that nest harbouring baby Ozzie, Oprah likely felt threatened and decided to dive bomb the falcon/gull fight and clear the area of any other birds.
