Osprey Pair

A beautiful day here on the sound, so nice that lunch outside was a must. With two kingfishers rattling about overhead I went down to the water with my camera to see if I could get a shot. Instead I found the osprey pair sitting on the tree. They made this one move but relaxed again. Not sure if I spooked them or a bit of wind caught them but they remained on the tree.
The female is on the left, the male has a band on his left leg. The female showed up around the first of March and the male arrived this past week. Up and down the island ospreys are returning to their nesting spots.
