The Osprey and the Coyote Just for Fun

As we have been doing once or twice a week for the past couple of months, we went out yesterday to do some fishing. We also took my son-in-law’s black lab out for a run and to go swimming. After a couple of very hot days, first 108 F then 102 F, the day was cooler; about 84 F. 

Every time we go out, we know that we are going to see some critters, but we never know which will grace us with their presence. This time, we got to see an osprey and a coyote, in slightly different locations but both from a distance of about 100 feet.

What do you think?

  1. Beautiful photos of wildlife that live freely in nature, and yet maybe even near populated places.
    Our bird has a Cormoran bird that eats daily from fish and up to 30kg of fish,
    Squirrels are shooting them from a hunting rifle.
    The bird makes economic damage to fishermen.

    • We also have cormorants here, though not many and they aren’t the variety that lives near the ocean. Some hunters do shoot squirrels here, and also snowshoe hares, but that isn’t all that common, really. There are plenty of predators here to eat the surplus, in most areas. The birds that are hunted here are mostly ducks, geese, pheasants, grouse, wild turkeys, and similar game birds. They aren’t just shot, though, they are eaten. Killing something here for no reason is frowned upon.

    • I especially love watching ospreys fishing. They have an astounding talent at catching fish.

      The coyote was just plain cute. It was so little, but there was no sign of any other coyotes, so it must have been on its own already.
