Pandion haliaetus


Once endangered due to DDT, there were no ospreys in San Diego when I lived there (off and on) from 67 through 84, or when I visited up throughthe 90's and early 2000's. Saw several on this trip, although none as easy to access as this pair on a nest in Mission on Santa Clara pt, next to the rec ctr, between the tennis court and the rec building.


on a light pole at Santa Clara Pt rec ctr


The first photo was due to my handling of my long lens.... it's still a cool shot with the bird's mouth open as he called to his mate Urban wildlife is one of my favorite pursuits
