Osprey in Bethany

I know I've seen lots of hawks around lately... a lot more than I ever saw here while growing up. And while I can't tell if they're all the same type of hawk or not, I can recognize one bird of prey... the osprey. And I had the pleasure of getting a fantastic view of one today while driving through Bethany along the banks of one of the many reservoirs.

It was perched about 50ft up... directly above the road... at the top of a tree that curved over the road and gave it a panorama of the entire reservoir.

I'm not a birder, but it was a real treat.
