Osprey in flight

An Osprey overhead at the Willamette River today - now a fairly common sight in most parts of this valley from April to September. They've made a remarkable comeback since DDT was outlawed in the U.S. a few decades ago, and as long as fish continue to be abundant, the Osprey population will probably continue to grow. Who could be sad about that?

I wouldn't be surprised if someone was sad about it.-Bald Eagles have made a great comeback in CT, but some birds are worried about their effect on ducks and gulls.
