A large bird flew over my yard this afternoon and landed high in a pine tree across the street. In size and shape as it flew it looked like a hawk, but I couldn’t identify it at first. Up in the tree all I could see was the back of a big brownish bird.

When it lifted and turned its head, I saw the white head with the dark stripe across its eyes–it was an Osprey.

I’ve seen Ospreys flying by often, but I’ve never seen one land in a tree near my house.
