Another osprey today–not one of the ospreys nesting at the community college. This osprey was flying over my yard carrying a branch, obviously in the process of building a nest.

I got several shots of the bird as it flew by.

Ospreys live near water and catch fish as their food. We’re not really close to water, but we aren’t too far from a river, and that must be where this osprey is building a nest.

There were lots of bluebirds around today, flying from tree to tree and sitting on the wires out front. This brightly colored bird has to be a male.

Twisting around to see what’s behind him.

This bluebird has softer coloring and is probably a female. She was sitting in a tree facing toward the west, picking up some soft light this afternoon.
