Osprey

With the cold Florida weather, flowers and bugs are pretty much non-existent, so the next best awesome species to photograph are birds!

So, I took the day to explore with a friend, Vitoca Caraveo, to create some video clips and take some photography at Honeymoon Island.

 

We didn’t see the eagles or the great horned owl.. but that gives us another reason to head back there in a couple of weeks.

About the Osprey | Florida Raptor

This particular location, Honeymoon Island, it was great to see at least three pairs and one pair at the beginning stage of building their nest. By observing this and this small of a location, I am assuming they are not overly territorial. It would actually be quite a video to see them build their nest.
