Belted Kingfisher, Red-Winged Blackbird and Osprey

My wife has a knack for spotting interesting birds.

In addition to the bald eagles she found a few months ago, she has spotted a tagged turkey vulture and an osprey while driving over the Lake Mathews dam.

I had a camera with me yesterday when she pointed out some birds, so we stopped to take a few pictures. We aren’t bird experts, so please let me if I found the wrong names on the Internet.

I took the pictures above with a point and shoot camera. Unfortunately, I didn’t even have that with me when we saw an Osprey last December.

    I’ve seen the osprey also, enjoying a fish for lunch while perched on a sign by the side of Cajalco rd.

    • I almost always carry a camera with me now just in case we see one again.
