Yesterday during our traditional Sunday hike, we saw two Ospreys working on their nest. The nest was already huge, but they kept adding material for hours. We saw them in the beginning of our hike, and later when we returned.
I believe Ospreys are my favorite bird of prey. I think they are cool. I really enjoy watching them. The Osprey population is growing, and they are not an endangered species. I took many photos of them yesterday, but these two are my favorites. (Safely purchase prints with any credit card, via my gallery through Fine Art America.

Ospreys are sometimes called River Hawk, Sea Hawk, or Western Osprey. Their mainly feeding of fish in rivers, lakes, and the ocean. One of their super powers is that they can see extremely well under water.
The Osprey is a hawk, but yet so different from other family members, that it is classified as a separate type of bird. You recognize them easily by how they fly, their wings almost looks like they are broken. They take the shape of an “M” when they fly. Their movements are still smooth, and very fluid. Watching them makes me smile. They are truly magnificent birds.
