Osprey on the lookout - 9-9-19
Monday, September 09, 2019
Ted Carleton found this osprey high on a perch, on the lookout for mama osprey and a newly fledged youngster:
I saw several large osprey nests on my drive back from Denver today, but didn't actually spot an osprey myself. This was actually one of those unusual trips when I didn't spot ANY wildlife. I typically see an antelope or deer, a small herd of elk or an eagle, or even the occasional Rocky Mountain sheep. Other than a variety of hawks keeping watch over open fields in the hope of catching lunch I struck out in the wildlife department today!
