Backyard Osprey

Backyard Osprey, originally uploaded by Chris S Thorpe.
This guy has become a daily visitor in our backyard. Osprey (aka fish-hawk) have re-established their presence on Long Island after decades of decline (see:DDT). Impressive as they are, their low "chirp" belies their prowess as efficient hunters.
