A birding stop at Greenfield Park in Milwaukee County this morning provided nice views of an adult Osprey. Ospreys are seldom seen at Greenfield Park so it was a real treat. The bird flew in and tried twice for something to eat. The first attempt for food failed but on the second it grabbed a goldfish and left the park. The bird made some flight circles, perched for a couple of minutes and made the grab for the food, that was the show but an exciting one at that. It was pleasant day with partly cloudy skies, low wind, and temps in the mid 70’s early on. Images were taken on August 18, 2018.
