As usual, I was walking the RiverDog down to Foster Island, when I spotted what appeared to be an eagle in the distance.
I began taking quick shots. River Dog has a way of scaring off my quarry.
The bird turned and I could see the bill, curved. Had to be an eagle. Wrong color.
Now I was excited. Dark mottled back and no white tail or head usually means osprey.
Unfortunately, the osprey was not thrilled to be photographed, especially just perched quietly. It lifted and left.
I could almost swear that this fellow is banded. Any thoughts, anyone?
