Clark Lake’s eagle must share its title of “bird of prey” with another.  Friday morning (9/4) this osprey was enjoying brunch on a dock along Eagle Point, facing west.  The osprey is all about its diet of fish.  They tend to nest near bodies of water where the fishing is good. And if one chooses your dock, expect that you will face a not altogether pleasant cleanup.

According to Wikipedia, ospreys are also known as “fish eagle, sea hawk, river hawk or fish hawk.”  As a large raptor, it “reaches 24 inches in length and 71 inches across the wings.”
