Ospreys on a high tower

Spotted today outside Inuvik near the airport: Two birds were making large circles and building a nest atop a high tower.

The birds were carrying sticks in their talons.

I believe the birds are Ospreys, but they could also be golden eagles.

  1. GREAT pics….

  2. Could be wrong but they look like osprey and that style of nest building would be in keeping with them. Gorgeous shots what ever they are.

  3. You are correct. They’re Ospreys, no doubt about that. Wings have the typical crook at the middle, no Golden Eagle has that much white, and the eagle is much more massive, like a wrestler while Ospreys are slimmer, like a runner.

    Beautiful pics of them in flight. Nicely captured!

  4. Howdy terrific blog! Does running a blog like this take
    a massive amount work? I have very little understanding of
    coding however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyways, should you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.

    I understand this is off topic nevertheless
    I simply needed to ask. Cheers!
