He was perched about 40 yards from my car. He looked like he was hunting the marina area pretty hard.

Osprey for sure, a real fishing machine. They show up on the Guadalupe below Canyon lake when the trout stockings start.

I look for Osprey every time I cross the Isabella Causeway from Port Isabel on to South Padre Island. There are usually a pair hanging around...

Saw one flying with breakfast around Ray Roberts the other day. This is where the eagles migrate to this time of year. It flew around me looking for something for about 5 minutes.

Would be cool to find someone with a big lens that could see the information on the band and call it in.
