Osprey fishing at Sutters Landing Park, Feb. 2nd morning. This was my first sighting of osprey fishing this lower part of the American River. NOTE: Robert has some great mushroom photos too & they are posted separately...
I first saw two Ospreys fly down river this morning
Later this one returned
Several low passes back and forth above the river
My first sighting with a catch
Not until I enlarged the photos did I realize it had two fish!
Where to perch now?
saw it finally head up to the protected area of the mound, there one fish was dropped to the ground, out of my sight. Obviously it could not land to feed until one talon was freed. Lucky for it no gulls where around.
