migratory osprey

This adult male osprey has been fishing at Jordan Lake the last 3 days. I think he is a migrant.
Our adult ospreys left about 4 weeks ago and only a few of our osprey fledglings and immatures are still here.
I don’t recognize the markings on this osprey.
I have watched him madly fishing the last 3 days – like a parent osprey with chicks would be fishing.
He is late for South America and is eating for the sustenance to finish the trip.
Note the silvery fish about 2 feet in front of his right foot.
And, the orange patches are the leaves flying past as I followed his track through the autumn trees.
