Living near the Mississippi I see many birds of prey. Red tail hawk, eagle and osprey to name a few. I am so lucky and will try to capture better photos. Thank you for all the help.
Saw this magnificent bird riding the thermal air. Couldn't tell at first if eagle or osprey. My iPhone couldn't get a great shot. His underside light not dark like eagle. Large wingspan. Seagulls were dwarfed gliding in same thermal.
Hi ChristySalmonson. Spottings are only useful if they are identifiable. This bird is too small to see. Perhaps you could write about how you identified it as an osprey? Or, if not, can you please remove this spotting. Thanks for understanding.
