    Double Whammy

    Last Sunday I was hiking along my favorite ridge trail when all of a sudden an osprey came in sight. It was cruising along the Lake Michigan shoreline at the exact altitude as the trail I was on, and I got a nice long look at him. Just as he flew out of sight, I began to wonder...

    Feathered Friends

    Osprey

    I went for a short hike today at a nearby park where there is a lake. I saw 2 Osprey, it was so cool. I have never seen Osprey there before. They were hunting and riding the wind and stuff. One of them vocalized. It was a thrill for me!
