Just Visiting


Not the best photo when taken through a kitchen window, but I learned long ago that raptors have genious eyes and ears and any attempt at getting closer would have resulted in their rapid departure from our "fish hawks" nest.  They stayed long enough for a fresh fish lunch and then departed up the river where I do know a bald eagle's nest exists...but perhaps this is a young new couple looking for real estate?  Unfortunately, this osprey nest is too close to boats and human activity and too low for eagles to feel safe.

I don't think the Ospreys will tangle with those two.

pretty good photo nonetheless. we don't get eagles down here so seeing your picture is a treat.

Great picture! Now I know where mine have been---checking out Tabor's meals. ;)

wow. what beautiful visitors you had...we used to have a raptor hospital near us in maryland so we got to see them upclose as they recuperated...

It's good to think that this may be a new pair adding to the population.

It's nice that they stopped for a visit, though. Let's hope they find a good place by spring.

Beautiful baldies. What a gift for them to stop by like that.
