Like so much of wildlife spotting for snakes or birds, for example, you hear their presence before you see them. Ospreys are no exception. The raucous screech of a (presumably hungry) nesting Osprey calling to its mate for lunch is unmistakable. Once heard it is easy to spot the nest from this trail in Maine.
The following shots were zoomed from the same place on the trail as the first picture.
We waited for some minutes in the vain hope that the mate might arrive with a fish.
It didn't and all that I could capture were a few fleeting moments when the nesting bird popped its head up.
Magical moments none the less.
