This morning I had the pleasure of cruising the causeway and finding a nice assortments of loons, mergansers, hooded grebes and a great black-backed gull. I was pleased and ready to proceed to join the San-Cap Audubon group for their weekly Saturday walks which officially began today. Even though this day was dampish, overcast and feeling down right chilly - a group of almost 30 people showed up. The birds didn't seem to mind the weather and were present in nice numbers.
Saw a lady Osprey who seemed to be comfortable on her perch....you be the judge.
|The size of this bird is amazing - from head to tip of tail it measures 35" long and the wing span measures 45" across.|
