This is one of a nesting pair of osprey's I recently saw. It flew above me with a salmon dangling in its grip. A couple who lives in the Magnolia neighborhood pointed out the nest to me. It must be four or five feet wide and is perched on top of a tower near the railroad bridge within sight of their house. The couple told me the ospreys had displaced some eagles that had nested nearby in years past, and that the eagles had moved further west and could now be seen hunting across from the renovated old Azteca location next to Ray's Boathouse. There are wonders to see and stories being told if we will just look up :-). Tomorrow I'll show you the nest, but today it is Skywatch Friday. Many more interesting skies to be seen by clicking here.
