It's not unusual to see an osprey perched on a dead palm tree across the street. This morning however, as I was heading out, I glanced over and realized that it wasn't the usual bird. Now,I don't have any special skill to tell one osprey from another. On the other hand, I am quite able to tell the difference between an osprey and a bald eagle.
I spent part of the afternoon taking pictures of the jets performing at a nearby airshow, then went off to get a picture of the day's SpaceX launch, and somehow still managed to get a bird picture too.
Today, I stopped by a beach access and walked over to "Peacock Beach" to see the launch. I didn't have any luck with the rocket, as the launch was scrubbed due to an errant airplane. Fortunately, I did have some luck finding a few of the beach's namesakes. They weren't actually on the beach, but nearby. In the space of 15 minutes, I was able to find 3 and heard several others.
