When thoughts turn to majestic birds, the Osprey usually doesn’t come to mind. Almost as large as a Bald Eagle, it is a striking bird, especially when flying with its coloring. Dark on top with a white body and wings on the bottom that taper from white to dark wingtips and a head that is primarily white with bold black strips. It is a fish raptor and lives and nests near bodies of water including lakes at high elevations, and the northern and central pacific coast. This picture was taken at at about 8000 ft in the Sierra Nevada. Enjoy your day!!!!!!
