Spring is in the air and the Ospreys are back. I’ve been missing these guys. I’ve been seeing many of my favorite migrators since mid March. On St. Patty’s Day I saw my first Greater Yellowlegs, then on the 30th a Great Egret showed up. I spied a Double-crested Cormorant fishing with the few remaining Common Mergansers on April Fool’s Day. I don’t get to see that very often. Two days later I saw an Osprey emerging from the Nissy with a silvery prize. And two days after that I saw my first Snowy Egret. The gang’s all here and I’m very happy about it. JK
Ah, you finally awakened from your hibernation! Good shot, Mr. Kayaker. 😉 Now see if you can get a goldfinch or two. 😉
I haven’t seen any goldfinches yet but I’ll see what I can do for you. JK.
Thanks! I appreciate that, Kayaker Man. They are my favorite — little feathered drops of sunshine. 🙂 I saw three ospreys flying together recently down by Huntington Bay. Just gliding along over the road next to the water. Beautiful sight! I wished you could have been there to photograph it.
