Osprey with Gar

Last month at Overlook Park I saw an fly by. This happens so frequently that I usually don’t bother to take a photo.

However, this time looked a little different. I put my binoculars on the bird and noticed that it was carrying a gar.

I can’t imagine that this is good eating, but I suppose when you’re an Osprey, you eat what you catch.

The fishermen at the park weren’t catching anything, so the Osprey was certainly having a better day.
