We were surprised to find an Osprey this morning while birding at Willamette Mission State Park. I believe it to be a juvenile male who looks to be having a bad hair day. He may be out of sorts because most of his kin have already left for Mexico or wherever. It's been over two weeks since we have seen an Osprey, in fact I posted about it on the 10th of this month. When we first spotted this bird this morning we could only make out a silhouette, so I did my best to come up with some other bird, but it turned out indeed to be an Osprey who is still hanging around. Click on the photo below to see and enlarged view of the Osprey and the snag he is on.
Summer too seems to be still hanging around with abundant sunshine and warm temperatures, causing us to continue to hang around outdoors as much as we can finding as many birds as we can.
