It is beginning to look like it will be another good summer, Maw & Paw are back. It looks like winter did a number on their nest. The top has a bad lean and our spring winds are about to start.

Thanks for sharing. You may hate me for saying this, but at certain angles, they remind me of pigeons. smile

Pigeons?!!

We need to get you out of the city and back into wildlife soon. These are birds of prey; not birds of hand-feeding in Central Park LOL.

I am lucky that over the years I have made friends with a pair of Bald Eagles and a pair of Osprey.

Roger,
indeed. My last comment was made to James' comment about some of the poses make them look like pigeons. I love Ospreys and try to capture them fishing in the lakes around Orlando. Without as much success as you've had smile. Eagles are more rare and much farther away generally for me to capture adequately with my 70-200 and 1.4X telextender. Maybe I'll have luck with both this weekend. If so, will share.
