Home Up Falcons-Owls












Lafayette Reservoir

Osprey spots a fish 



talons are positioned


Cormorant spots the fish too







and fish escaped



A month later. Cormorant is still hostile to osprey



Another day, another pursuit



Getting a good breakfast


pesky visitors arrive


Can't believe this rudeness.


a little scare tactics ......


but expect no manners from crows

I arrived just in time to see the osprey plunge into the water to get his fish. It was a struggle to get airborne from this position, but he was  successful.
