Cool pics. You don't get a sense of how large a bird the Osprey is from these photos, though.

They are not quite as big as a Bald Eagle -- which are frequent in this area, too -- but still quite large.

When you're driving along the four-lane through Garden River, and you see their giant nests at the top of the Hydro towers, remind yourselves that those nests are about 1 metre in diameter, and the bird you see sitting on the edge that looks to be the size of a crow is about three times as big.
