This afternoon I was out enjoying some solitary birding heading down Myer's Road toward Myer's Point Park and when I came opposite the Osprey platform on the south side of the road I encountered 4 ospreys (I think it was 4 although I only saw three simultaneously). They were flying in circles close to each other. It turned out one had a fish in a claw and the others were interested. After a couple of minutes the group dispersed a bit and the one with the fish flew to the nest. Shortly after that another osprey joined the fisher. I thought for a while they were going to mate but the one with the fish was more interested in eating.

At the private marina next to Myer's Point were a dozen American Coots, a pair of hooded mergansers, a one greater scaup.
