Two Osprey at Eastern Neck NWR


Our Chesapeake Bay Osprey have long departed for South America, and still this past week I’ve caught sightings of northern Osprey migrants passing through on their mission south.

Two days ago I saw an Osprey flying over Rock Hall harbor while attending the Great Train Robbery Bike Fest at the bulkhead. “Free Bird” blaring and seeing an Osprey, pretty darn cool!

And then another awesome sighting yesterday while visiting the refuge!  Not just one, but I saw two juvenile Osprey, both fishing at the Eastern Neck bridge at the same time.

The second juvenile showed off its impressive fishing skills, snagging two fish.

Both Osprey headed in opposite directions and perched with their meals.

Osprey are said to travel alone during their fall migration to South America.  But maybe these two are defying the general practice.  😉


Side note:  The WP woes continue with trying to comment on different blogs. I am leaving comments that never show up, sometimes my “like” doesn’t show either.  Here are some of you that I have left recent comments and/or likes so you know my dilemma with you and that I have been keeping up and enjoying your posts!
