Description

I saw at least 2 osprey circling around the river and diving to catch fish. When they caught one, starlings and crows would chase the osprey. The osprey would circle higher and higher until it was a tiny dot in the sky, where I assume it would soar to its nest and feed its babies. I was surprised by how fast they were.
