My plan was to find some bald eagles in northern Colorado where I had luck last weekend. Today they were more elusive and nowhere to be found so I found a few other subjects including a hungry osprey.
The goslings, great blue heron and red-winged blackbird are quite common in Colorado this time of year. The heron, as usual, proved to be the most difficult to get close to and as usual, I ended up with only a parting shot.
The osprey is the male of a pair that nests at the Boulder County Fairgrounds. She was sitting on her eggs while he had the opportunity to roam around. He flew off soon after I arrived but returned with his breakfast – a fish. It was fun watching him eat but I do wish he had cooperated for some good flight shots.
