Baffled by a Flyover?
- Good Evening,
I'm hoping some of the Tallahassee area birders can help me figure out
a flyover that has me baffled. I live East of town off Buck Lake Rd.
From my house, birds would have a direct flight over Alford Greenway,
then to Lower Lake Lafayette, very close to Piney-Z. Today I had
flyovers of Snowys and a Woodstork which is not unusual. I see Herons
frequently. But I think today was the first time, I recall seeing an
Osprey fly over my yard. But what has me baffled, is he was hauling a
big fish (I got a poor quality picture) and he was heading TO Lake
Lafayette. Why would an Osprey be Fishing someplace else?
And ...Where? He was flying from the North.
If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate the input.
