    This is my new personal best osprey. Taken on Cape Cod this week. It took an amazing amount of effort to get this shot. ;)

    Wow, with the coast in the background, you must have been airborne yourself.
    Now where did that fishing line come from?
    Good Pic, good taxidermy!!

    God Bless

    Gosh, Jim, you caught me!

    OK, here's one from a couple years ago. Not quite as good, though. :p

    Len, I guess that's a matter of opinion. I think the second one is better!

    I expect you know all of this but here is a nice website

    Long ago, one of my losing battles was the Dusky Seaside Sparrow down in Florida. A nondescript little bird that had to make way for timeshare condominiums.

    They are both amazing pictures but I personally like the second one better too!

    THanks, guys.

    Jim, not many birds here right now. They start coming back in a week or two.
