3 More Osprey and Some Locals

Early Aug28th,I saw 2 Osprey fly by. Soon Ann joined me and we saw big gull after big gull fly past. Carol joined us and turned one of our gulls into the 3rd Osprey of the day.
We then saw only one more countable raptor,a Sharpshinned Hawk.
The remainder of our raptor sightings were local birds. The Coopers Hawk and a Turkey Vulture made close low passes which Ann caught on film wonderfully!
The local juvenile Redtailed Hawk was harassed by a family of American Crows. I watched this happen twice today.
The final total was 4,consisting of 3 Osprey and 1 Sharpshinned Hawk. The coming days could be much the same until the humidity breaks.
