Feeding Osprey.


Recommended Posts

Whyone?

Over the last three weeks I have spent the first 2 or 3 hours most days either walking along the spit which separates the Gulf of Mexico from Marco Island in SW Florida, or in the tidal lagoon which lies between Tigertail Beach and Marco Island. The area is recognised and protected as an important breeding ground for all manner of birds (more of which in another post at a later date). One morning I came across this very obliging osprey who was quite content for me to wade into the lagoon to get the early morning sun to my back and spend 35 or so minutes watching breakfast...tail and all!
