But I digress. I have been to Hoover boardwalk before, seeing the two Osprey nesting platforms, but no sign of Ospreys. A few days before my visit, I read a tip posted to the Ohio Birds Listserve that a pair of ospreys had been sighted in the area, so my recent visit was to specifically to see and possibly photograph the ospreys.
I uploaded this image at 2000 pixels. Click for a much larger image, and see if you can find the osprey in the tree.
So that was my thirty minute adventure with the Ospreys of Hoover Reservoir, located right here in Central Ohio on property owned by the City of Columbus. Maybe they'll lay eggs? Maybe they already have eggs- I'll be back soon.
