Osprey

Pandion haliaetus

Description:

Happy to get these shots from a macro lens. This Osprey was calling two others flying overhead and finally took flight. "Ospreys are brown above and white below, and overall they are whiter than most raptors. From below, the wings are mostly white with a prominent dark patch at the wrists. The head is white with a broad brown stripe through the eye."

Habitat:

Lake Poway

Thank you so much, Luis and Casey! I was very happy these turned out. I still have a kink in my neck from waiting 20 min for this beauty to take off but it was worth it!
