Ozzy the Osprey

Chuck Bancroft, State Park Ranger

On Saturday afternoon November 11th, I was walking the Carmelo Meadow Trail.  Yes, I walk trails even on my days off.  Camera in hand, I was looking for Ozzy the Osprey.  First seen by Lifeguard Kevin Brady two years ago this coming January, Ozzy has been a regular at the Reserve and over at the restoration area at Odello West, part of Carmel River State Beach.  I can just hear Ozzy thinking.

"Let's see, steelhead or rock fish.  What would I like for lunch today."

This time it was rock fish. 

Osprey and lunchOzzy perched at the end of a bare pine tree branch and ripped and tore his way through the fish. A slightly windy day, the branch moved, Ozzy moved and lost his balance.  I was able to get a wonderful series of images of Ozzy with wings spread in varous positions trying to regain balance and not loose lunch.  Here are a couple of those images.
