FOR WORLD BIRD WEDNESDAY (go visit!). Thank you Dave.
Spotted on a morning walk along our canal toward the end where this light pole is, the osprey was sitting so quietly that at first I didn't even think it was a bird. He didn't move much for about half-an-hour -- just looked left and right -- searching for something to eat.
And finally giving up and flying off. (I was ready for breakfast by that time too!)
