Osprey Comeback

Osprey eating a fish atop a light pole south of Boston

Will Wright had the incredible luck of having his camera in his hand at the right place and time. Driving on Rt 93 south of Boston I caught this shot of an Osprey eating a fish on a light pole through the sun roof of the car I was in. It’s even in focus!

The Osprey has been making a steady recovery after being decimated by DDT through the 50’s and 60’s. I read that 90% of the breading pairs were lost between Boston and New York.

I used to see them in Maine’s Booth Bay region in the 80’s but never around greater Boston. Now they’re here. I even saw one cruising above the Merrimack in Lawrence. If they can make it there, they can make it anywhere.
