Osprey at Banner Marsh. We thought it was a bald eagle until I got out the scope. The eye patches and dark tuft on top clearly identify it as an osprey. To be here at the end of July, it must be nesting here, not just migrating through the region. According to Sibley, juveniles should be fledging in July. This is my first "digiscoped" photograph, taken by hand-holding the camera (Nikon CP995) up to the eyepiece of the scope.
