Got Wet, But Didn’t Get A Fish
This past weekend I was watching an osprey hunting fish in the marsh pond. At one point he dove down and hit the water hard and it took him a couple of seconds to begin to emerge. At first only his head and wings came up as he struggled to get airborne again. I expected to see a fish in his talons but as the osprey cleared the water I saw that he came up empty this time. The osprey had only wet feathers to show for this dive, and I can’t be certain, but it seemed to me that he had a look of disgust on his face as he took off out of the water.
