Wild Bird Wednesday 156–Osprey juvenile

Wild Bird Wednesday

I stopped by the Osprey nest the other night to see what was happening. This is the juvenile, with the dark eye that will become yellow as it matures, and the buff-colored tips on the feathers.

    • Thanks, Stewart. 🙂 I didn’t realize it was the juvenile until I got home and downloaded the card. I knew something looked different, but I didn’t expect it to be this big already.


    • Thanks, Eileen. 🙂 It is a wonderful day! The eagle nest/tree has been granted a reprieve, the city hasn’t obtained the permit it needs to remove it, apparently. Word yesterday was that it was coming down today.


    • Stalking, following, it’s all the same, Al. Thanks for stopping by to see them. I’ve learned a lot about bird ID from stalking other birdwatchers. 🙂


    • That’s one thing I like around coastal areas, lots of water birds. They seem to be my favorite. I imagine if I lived in the mountains–if I ever saw a bird in those dense trees–they would be my favorites. I have a hard time finding the smaller birds when at the botanical garden and park trails. Of course, binoculars would help, and I don’t always think to take them along–hubby is in charge of carrying those when we walk.
