Hawkwatch, 16 October 2016

The day started off with sunrise and moonset taking place at the same time. The early morning glow of lavender and orange filled the air. One of the first sightings of the day was an Osprey carrying a recently-caught  fish for breakfast. A nearby immature Bald Eagle had different plans for the Osprey's meal. After several minutes of pursuing the Osprey, the Bald Eagle got ahold of the recently-dropped fish. South winds and sunny skies made for another day of high-flying raptors.

The chase for the fish!
