Osprey on it’s perch

While photographing the intercoastal waterway from Sullivan’s Island, Dorothy spotted a large bird on top of a man-made platform that was obviously created for a nest. We learned that it was an Osprey on it’s perch, a bird that was becoming scarce several years ago but is much more abundant now.

As much as my wife tried, this guy would neither turn to look at me nor show us his wide wing space. Larry Shapiro photo
