Not an Eagle but an Osprey

Having lunch with our son Gerry and his buddies at the Johnston City McDonalds, Gerald was telling Gerry about the eagle. Immediately Gerry said, "I bet it was an osprey."

Sure enough, Gerald came home and looked up osprey on the Internet and found out it is the only bird that hunts for fish in the way he saw this big hawk doing yesterday. The Internet article said that it is often confused with the bald eagle.

Son-in-law Brian dropped in late last night to copy some records for the a local government farm office before he headed off to Lake Saint Louis. He was feeling great with this crop all in before today's rains. He didn't arrive home until 1:30 this morning, but I'm sure he would tell you it was worth it.
