Today, we saw Ospreys
near the lake in our home county.
The state park we visited
has a ball field only a few feet from the lake.
The Ospreys are nesting on top of
the light poles surrounding the field.
We could not get an accurate count
but know that we saw at least four.

This particular park is large
and a boat dock is on the opposite side
from the ball field.
When not on these poles,
they were at the boat dock,
perched on near-by trees
It was difficutl to get a good picture
of them in flight;
however, they flew between the
ball field and the dock all morning.
It was a beautiful sight and enjoyable day!  We identified 43 species in all, and I will give the full report when I Tweet and See at the end of the month!

Happy Birding!


  1. don't think we have ever seen an Osprey. We need to borrow your osprey finder for a week.

  2. What an interesting nest location! I'm also amazed you could identify so many species in an area like that.
