Osprey

A few days ago I looked up, and saw an Osprey.
He saw me back. He looked down, and he asked, "Are you food? Cuz you kinda look like food."

Sweet. I don't think that we have Ospreys here. Eagles, Owls and Redtails, but no Ospreys yet.

Dang it, I wanted to be first!!!

Are you food? LOL! You crack me up Cat.

Maybe one day I'll tell you the story about a great big ol' barn owl that almost killed me.

Well, I thought he was going to anyway...

We have a pair of them nesting in a tall snag by the Provo River near our house. Without a much better lens, I couldn't get that good a picture though.

I initially thought they were bald eagles (we do have them in the area) but was told by those who know their birds better than I they were ospreys instead -- and looking more closely, that appears to be the case.

I love that so many areas have recovery programs for the osprey population.

Beautiful bird. I'm glad the DDT didn't get them all.
