Didn't think this this should go under predators because I'm not thinking the Osprey would actually eat the Comorant,it just didn't want him fishing there right under/in front of his nesting platform is all...
If I had to guess I would say the Osprey was traveling at about 60mph.... :shock:

What a luck. You don't see something like that every day.

Great action sequence, kpr. I haven't seen an osprey chasing a cormorant, but have seen territorial chase-offs like that before with other species. Also nice solo osprey shots.

Here are some more catch-up shots from my wetlands areas over the past few months:

This heron is a mixed breed - part great-blue, and part Wurdemann's:

My first sighting of a Baltimore oriole...this one was a female:

Roseated spoonbill flying overhead:

Northern rough-winged swallow in flight...these things are like bullets and hard to track!:

Hazel Grouse. This little creature is extreamly hard to photo. I was lucky and these were the only one's I was able to take before it flew away.
