Outstanding shot!  I so wish I could find some osprey down here.  I only see about 1-2 a year and can never get a good shot.

Thanks Kris. I can't remember seeing any down there as well. Osprey are one of the rare pure species. There are many brands of Eagles, Hawks and ..., but only one Osprey.

Another magnificent photo, John.

Will he regurgitate the contents of his crop for the chicks or is it all his own ?

Thanks Guys. 

Rod - that's all for him. The female tears small bits of raw fish for the chicks from day one. He is bringing about four fish a day back to the nest to feed mom and 3 chicks. I am trying but still don't have one really good image of the chicks. Here is an image of them I have not spent any time on but shows mom feeding.

I really do not know how you do it John. fantastic picture again..  His crop is way full.. lol he reminds me of some the wildlife rescue birds I work with on there first night in the hospital. some have not eaten for a couple days so they gorge themselves..    Rhetorical question. Why is it when you have a beautiful blue background of ocean it looks very plain, but if you a measly 10% of blurry greeness it looks stunning!  Don't know why, just know I like it.. Great pic, Well done!
