We often watch the Osprey hover over the bay, plunge in a full speed dive, splash, and regain the air with a catch in it's long, strong talons.
Osprey are sometimes called Sea Hawks because they feed predominately on fish. In Seattle we especially like this common name.
Tuesday we had the privilege of watching a sea hawk perch on that nearby piling in the lagoon where last time I showed you a heron preening. This amazing fisher took his time ripping into his fish dinner.
We're back home from our island retreat. We had more rain than sun, but some good walks, a trip to Langley, a bit of gardening and lots of reading.
