Two Large South Florida Birds in Flight


Recommended Posts

Two birds were flying the same patterns near each other, so I assume they were the same.  I was doing my best to capture them in flight and am not sure whether I captured both, or just one.  Taken this afternoon in Boynton Beach Florida.  Hoping I can get a positive ID, as I think it may be a new "lifer."

Based on wing length and shape they look like Osprey. The first picture really gives off the impression of Osprey. Long pointed wings and you can begin to make out the black and white coloring.

Both Osprey. The second one is fun to figure out the orientation 

Ty guys.  I got better looks than the pictures and there was definitely more recognizable white than what I posted.  I've only seen Ospreys perched, never in flight, but looking at pics of Ospreys in flight makes me confident of the IDs.
