Osprey, it seems, have a bit of a sense of humor. At least this is the appearance as we walked through the marina in South Kingstown, Rhode Island the other evening. This one was peering over the edge of the nest and dodging and seemingly play "peek-a-boo" with us as she was settling in the nest. I am also thinking that there was a glint of sunlight being reflected off of the camera lens, so I moved so as not to be a disturbance. 

Nevertheless, she makes an excellent subject. She has perfect views of the boatyard activity where Silver Spring Cove feeds into the "Upper Pond" (Point Judith Pond). A fortunate bird to have such accommodations and fishing too!

In a closing note, we love seeing and even interacting with these wonderful creatures... from a distance. We make it our policy to never disturb or harass animals of any kind. We are there to observe and share.
