Jordan Lake. The first time I saw a female osprey my mind said “Empress“. There is something about the mind set and obvious command pulsing from an adult female osprey that brings that imagery of royalty to me. Enjoy this Empress of Jordan Lake.

Jordan Lake. While cruising with Captain Doug, from far off we could see a huge fish under the talons of an osprey fledgling. She was quite proud of the fish. Captain Doug got us around to where we could see the Osprey’s front. The fish’s head is missing. Most likely one of the parents caught the fish, removed the head and then gave the carcass to her daughter.
