The Big Guy-Osprey
Friends, while sitting on Hawk Ridge watching the leaves turn into fall colors, and waiting for the occasional hawk, this big bird gave us a fly-over. We told him there aren’t any fish on the ridge but he was curious and gave us the once over. This is an adult osprey with a bright yellow eye who was flying northward when all the traffic is southerly. Guess he didn’t get the memo. When ospreys glide their wings are bent slightly at the wrist, as shown in the image below. til Tomorrow MJ

The king or the queen of the sky… 🙂
think it was a female, the necklace around the neck is not a definite mark, but suggests female, so queen with a necklace, MJ
Wonderful shot! Ospreys are such fine creatures to check out. Great photo with the feathers spread out at the end of the wing.
thanks for your nice comment, MJ
