Jordan Lake Fishing Free-For-All
I was busy this morning and hardly knew which bird to follow!
There were fish schooling and the ospreys and cormorants had found them.
Cormorants would pop up, swallow their fish and dive, again and again.
Ospreys lined up like planes on a runway and zipped down to fish almost on top of the cormorants!
Don’t miss the fish that got away, to the right of the osprey, in the 2nd photo!!
Jordan Lake, Friday, June 14, 2019.
The lake is slowly but surely coming down.
This morning I found a shadow of me.
Go ahead and zoom in a little bit on the left side of the frame of the video as you watch.
I hope it brings back good memories to each of you. Memories of learning how to see the world differently.
Take care, be safe.
The fledgling bald eagle chases father osprey and tries to get the osprey to drop its fish.
Then dad Hershey changes the game.
I am letting the northern mockingbird greet you today.
He is literally singing in the rain here at the lake.
The cove suddenly erupted in Mom Kate’s high pitched angry alarm calls.
This time the intruder was another bald eagle.
I looked toward the main lake and there was Petruchio making a high speed dash for home.
Dad Petruchio had a fish for his family.
The two-year-old bald eagle wanted to steal the fish.
The dash was on as both raced toward the nest.
Eventually there were two two-year-olds and a three-year-old trying for the fish.
Petruchio made it to the nest and the screams continued.
Finally he and Kate stand side by side and watch the intruders fly out.
