While walking the fisherman's trail along Cayuta lake (AKA Kayutah and Little Lake) yesterday I flushed an Osprey who took off across the water. Before it lifted off, I heard the chirruping sound they make, then it flew low, close to the water and occasionally dragging it's feet, as if rinsing them off. Maybe cooling off?
It was a pleasure!
