Osprey

Osprey
An Osprey or Fish Eagle photographed along the Methow River south of Twisp, Washington. He had been fishing and actually has a fish in his left claw, but it cannot be seen in the photo. We watched him for quite a while until he finally flew away with his catch. The Methow Valley and River are on the eastern side of the Cascades.

Nice catch, Ron. I have only seen these in their nests and never have a powerful enough zoom to get a good photo

Love these birds with their bright yellow eyes. I have photographed many of them here and at Blue Cypress Lake where there is a rookery.
Nice find.
