I was hoping I could just add this to the other pic of the osprey, but I guess not, but I'm getting the hang of this.  This is an osprey that caught a fish and ate half of it.  I think he's taking the rest back to the nest...What a guy!

Comment by Karl Ford on November 16, 2012 at 8:22am

This is an Osprey.  They hunt for fish by hovering over the water and then diving into it.  It's fantastic to watch.

Hello, I'm a professional photographer that just happens to take a lot of pix of birds, especially since I moved to Florida.  The variety here is amazing, and I've gotten some great shots.  Steph S. invited me some time ago if I wanted to post some, so...

Hey Tony!

I'll answer your question with a discussion on the difference.

It would take the whole board up here.

I love the new bird photos you posted.

How pretty.

Steph, is a Sanderling also a Sandpiper? Still, a strikingly stunning bird.

Australian Passerine. Wonderful black/yellow colors.

Gouldian Finch, also from Australia.
