This is the first osprey that I have seen this year. However, Patricia Bambrick saw one at the beginning of last week in Crescent Valley, and Lorraine Symmes saw this same one yesterday on the North Arm. Indeed, it was her sighting that prompted me to take this picture.
Ospreys begin arriving in April (the males come first) and will stay, breed, and raise their chicks for the next half year.
My first osprey of 2019.
