Make My Day

I’ve been out birding locally twice this week, and there seems to be more birds in my own neighborhood than in the local hot spots, perhaps because the water levels are so low in the lakes. There was nothing but year-round mallards at Titlow, and Waughop was little better. I thought I’d have to be satisfied with a glimpse of this juvenile Pied-Billed Grebe,

until I caught sight of an Osprey diving repeatedly into the lake. Of course, it was on the side I’d already been on. I’d almost decided to go back when the Osprey came circling overhead,

but unfortunately didn’t dive again. Still, it was enough to make my day.

  2. Great pictures – love the osprey, and now I’m sure it is the same bird we saw in the Adirondacks. I’m going to post the picture my husband took – sadly not close enough to really see its head as well as your picture though!

What do you think?
