Osprey with a Fish

.

Our Chesapeake Bay Osprey have almost all disappeared for their migration to South America.

There are a few laggers, but now sightings can also be those that left from regions north of us and are passing through, stopping for some fabulous fishing and rest.

We passed by this beauty who was beginning to feast on it’s catch while perched on Light Marker #5 in the Kent Narrows channel.

  1. Looks like a good meal! All of our local Ospreys have departed too. The male parent was seen ‘checking’ that the 3 offspring had all gone and then disappeared himself last week.

  2. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ“·πŸŒΉπŸ€— great capture dear Donna🌹 I’d have fish too… but I have cous cous readyπŸ™ƒ

  3. An amazing capture for both you and the Osprey Donna, it shows how well designed their talons are for the purpose another example of intelligent design

  4. Two weeks ago I went to Clearwater Beach and saw a lot of Ospreys sitting on light poles on the way to Pier 60, They were busy fishing and feeding themselves, there were many cormorants also, I was driving and the busy traffic, didn’t allow me to stop for pictures. Yes, they must be on the move to South America. Great photos, Donna. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, HJ! Lots of Osprey traffic coming your way for sure! I bet you’ve got some year-round resident Osprey in your area too, lucky you. I knew someone who lived in the Clearwater/Tampa area and kept track of their year-round Osprey for several years. πŸ™‚
