An Osprey Sunset

I’ve been keeping an eye on Skyfire which is an paid addition to the app The Photographer’s Empheremis on my iPhone for the past two months. Skyfire is a sunrise and sunset color predictor and can look up to three days. While not 100% perfect, it at least […]

Update on Zorro & Esperanza

Since the return of Zorro and Esperanza to their Osprey platform, I’ve been watching them each day. At first they spent a lot of time away from the nest, but daily I could see that more sticks had been added in the early morning. Esperanza has been quieter […]

Flight Testing

In a week’s time, the Three Musketeers have grown in leaps and bounds. From having wings with feathers barely formed, their feathers are beginning to look like they are ready for flight. It was busy on the nest tonight. With Zorro coming in with a big catfish, dinnertime, […]
