These Birds Sure Do Love Baseball...
# They never miss a home game, I'm not even kidding!
### Here is a Western Osprey (Pandion haliaetus), also known as a fish hawk or a sea hawk.  Osprey can apparently reach up to 6 feet across the wings but I don't think I've seen them larger than 4 or 5 feet myself.  I was thrilled to capture this one a few days ago... Here is an adult bird which has just left the nest in search of food for its hungry chicks who were making a lot of noise in the nest way overhead.

### Let me show you the nest, which has been up there in the stadium lighting for years...

### A few minutes after the adult took off hunting, one of the chicks began to fly from one lighting tower to the next.

### I did my best to follow by walking all around the perimeter of the ball park taking photos over the fence wherever I could catch a glimpse.  The bird was quite far away for most of these shots.

### Here's the closest photo I could get of the fledgling osprey.

### Friday night! _Victoria Harbourcats_ vs _Port Angeles Lefties_ from Port Angeles, Washington. I've never heard of a team that was all lefties... You don't think they mean it, do ya?  Maybe I'll have to join the birds and take in a game this weekend!

Thank you!  I just had a look at your photos which are gorgeous!  I'd rather see a nest in a tree than a light stand :-)

It was on a lost small island somewhere in Cuba, never expected to find one there! 🙂

That nest is incredible.... What a place to build one! I suppose much of the year no one is around to bother them. Great photos!
