Jordan Lake. This fledgling osprey has only been flying about eight weeks. She managed to catch and carry a striped bass that is as long as she is. She never got more than about 2 feet above water. After resting on the log for three minutes she managed to lift the fish one more time and disappeared around the tree line from my sight.

Jordan Lake. There are two species of crows at the lake. There is the American crow and the fish crow. The easiest way to tell these two very similar species apart is to listen to them. I am certain you know the caw caw of the American crow so here is the fish crow for comparison.
