Taken this morning in Longmont, Colorado. This female osprey was hanging out on a light pole near her nest. After posing for many pictures of her just standing, she obliged with a picture-perfect flyover.
The osprey in the Centennial State will soon be starting their winter migration to Mexico and South America after summering in the northern, cooler climes of North America.
Using GPS tracking, scientists have estimated that an osprey may migrate 160,000 miles over its 15 to 20 year lifespan.
