Saw several different osprey today. For some the light was good, and this was one of them.

Hey thanks again guys, it was a great time. The day before I was not so happy when I found one of the local osprey's remains in the roadway. There are two, maybe three nests with-in a half mile area. It is impossible to tell where that one belonged.

Fortunately, the next day I was able to count at least three osprey hunting at one time. You know life goes on, and these birds can't stop taking care of themselves. I just feel blessed to be able to notice the great wonders around me.

Well said. The Ospreys in the Chesapeake were especially hard hit by DDT contamination some years ago. They have been coming back well there and elsewhere, but they (and Bald Eagles) still haven't bred well in Southern California where they used to be more numerous,especially so in the Channel Islands.
