      Looking at this made me laugh out loud!  First time since this “new normal” began.

    Wondered why the osprey was carrying such large twigs so looked up what their nest looks like.  Now I know!

    Does the eagle have some kind of line caught on its talon?

    • Localite May 3, 2020 (6:08 pm)

      It looks to be a strand of seaweed.

    I love our wildlife,  thanks for the photos!  Good question, has anyone seen the West Seattle Turkey in a while?

      Last seen in Tukwila/Renton about two weeks ago – at least that’s the last sighting called to our attention. Most folks down that way wouldn’t know to let us know, so I hope she’s still doing OK in her southern travels.

Sorry, comment time is over.
