Neat stuff Joan. Definitely a hang out for a big bird in the background.

The link below shows the kind we grow around here. (Hope the link works.)

Joan,

Looks like a great place for birding. (bird watching). Are you sure thats a osprey? Looks like a Bald Eagle to me.

Eric, we thought it looked like an eagle at first, but then decided it was an osprey. I wouldn't place any bets on being right, though.
Is that the osprey helicopter?

RE: Osprey, gull...

Yeah, that's our home grown Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft. They get a little touchy about refering to it a merely a helicopter. ;)

How about a whirle bird?

Joan,
I'm pretty certain you captured an eagle in your picture, not an osprey. Merritt Island has lots of eagles. I drove through there just a couple weeks ago - something I try to do 3 or 4 times a year - and saw several eagles. Also captured this guy:

Aren't there 2 birds in the pic? One looks more like an eagle. The other could be an osprey?

On the left of the eagle/osprey (He sure looks like an eagle in the photo) is a gull. Everytime the other bird dropped something, the gull was right on it.
Kate, we went to Merritt Island WR 3 times this winter, we just LOVE it!

Joan,
That is definately a Bald Eagle. An Osprey doesn't look anything like that.
