AMAZING shots of the Osprey :?



I love the shot when he's sticking his head out of the water.

I have been that close to a diving osprey and it is incredible. It also sounds like a 40lb. weight hitting the water too. lol

Absolutely wonderful and wondrous photos!!!! The immature baldy certainly is not camera shy. Cheers, Dan

Great shots as usual. I'm no bird expert, but I wonder if the 'immature' baldy is actually a Golden Eagle, which I think is bigger than a Baldy ?

I could be wrong, any bird experts out there?

Superb pictures, what equipment did you use ?

It is a Bald Eagle - it is possible to confuse first year eagles, but this one is too well photographed to be confused. The bill is more massive, the face pattern is too uniform, the white beneath the wings is too irregular, the feathers under the tail are not reddish, there are no golden feathers on the nape of the neck, and the feet above the toes are not feathered; the opposite of all these would be the case with a juvenile Golden. There is also much overlap in sizes.
