We don't get many of these fellows around here. He's coming in from Walker Lake we don't know what's wrong with him yet - looks like he might have lost some primary feathers.

NAB :)

Mighty handsome fellow.

He is gorgeous, and we have these lovely creatures around our rivers.

Our wildlife rehabber here, will usually do a detox on water foul and those that eat fish, as standard procedure among the usual (if there are no obvious symtoms).

Detox sounds good to me without any "obvious" signs.

What a beauty!

I see you are continuing to supply us with lovely creatures and stories to match! What an area you live in!!

Sending all our loving healing best to this fine fellow, Nab and Nancy!

They are certainly rare around here. I've only seen four, two separate and a pair last summer. Look at those talons!! :eek: I hope he makes a speedy recovery.

I love osprey! They're pretty, and luckily they stick to fish! We have a conservation type of thing very close to here, right on a river, so there are lots of eagles, herons, and osprey there. I haven't seen one anywhere but there, besides the occasional one flying over our house. But I can see why, those guys need to nest up wayyyy high :eek: The conservation place has a lot of tall poles with platforms on them for the osprey to nest :)
