We have an osprey come around and hang out everOstr2y now and then.  He always picks the same branch on the same tree to perch.  I am amazed that he remembers exactly the same place every time he’s here because he is not here often.  Granted, it is the tallest tree and it does offer an excellent view of the canal below and all the fish swimming by, but the osprey always grabs hold of the same limb. He’ll look down into the canal and then swoop down when he Ostr4sees a fish near the surface.  He’ll grab it with his talons and take off to wherever his dinner table is.  He even knows to point the fish headfirst as he flies, making it more aerodynamic.  He didn’t get a chance to fish today. In fact, I just about got these two pictures.  Just as I got my camera out, the guy with one of those big sit-down lawnmowers came by and spooked my friend.  For those who may not know, if you click on the pictures they will swell up just swell!  Okay, I guess it’s back to the ducks for entertainment.


Books by Marc Kuhn: THE POPE’S STONE, an historical novel that follows two descendants of a Virginia family who, despite living a century apart, share uncanny similarities in their lives; NEVER GOOSE A MOOSE, a collection of whimsical verse featuring thought-provoking “never-do’s” that children should beware of; and ABOUT A FARM, a children’s book about challenges we all face every day, regardless of where we live.  All three books are available at and each has its own .com website under its title.
