Ospreys, Eagles, and Nest 14

 Another breathtaking day on Waites! Still no activity on Nest 14 (the final nest of the year) but we did see this beautiful sunrise.
 Some clouds have a silver lining. This one has gold.

And it's finally up! You know you get up early when the sun seems to be a late-riser.

As you can see, not really very much going on.
 But we had an incredible show at the short end, where we were privileged to witness eight ospreys diving and scouring the waves for fish.

This shot's a little blurry, but you can see the large wingspan and the determined arc into the sky. Also (though unfortunately we were not quick enough to get a picture) we glimpsed a bald eagle flying overhead. :)
You can't really get any closer to a perfect day. Still waiting on Nest 14...but hey...this is a pretty good way to wait.
