 Ospreys,

Lafayette Reservoir

Osprey spots a fish 

 

 

talons are positioned

 

Cormorant spots the fish too

 

 

collision

 

shouting

 

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.
