Ospreys

Ospreys are very large hawks that are primarily brown and white with white heads, chests and a brown streak through the eyes.

I photographed this Osprey at Lettuce Lake Regional Park from the observation tower, the Osprey had tried to catch a fish but came up with just the filamentous algae in its talons.

Three days ago a first of the year sighting from the UBIRD group got me all excited because it means that the Ospreys have returned to Utah!

This Osprey flying in from the Gulf over the north beach of Fort De Soto came as a surprise to us so I had little time to prepare and get my setting right due to how fast the Osprey was flying.
