Meet the elegant tree swallow!

Bird tree swallow

I never realized how long and elegant a tree swallow is for such a small bird. Must be the swallowtail!


Ospreys at work in early morning light-

bird osprey new nest

Up before sunrise, this osprey pair is busy constructing nest in a new location… on the eagle mating tree at the mouth of Pomonkey Creek where it enters the Potomac River. Not sure the osprey have selected a good location for a nest. But we have a good view of the site so we will continue to observe their progress.
