December 26th, 2014 – Avian Friday: Blue is in Season

Well here we are at another years end and I hope you all had a great Christmas.
I didn’t get out for bird photography nearly enough this year, but I still have a bunch of images from past outings to keep this weekly series going. This weeks bird is an Osprey, also known by some as a Sea Hawk as they tend to inhabit marine areas and feed primarily on fish.
Our Seattle Seahawks football team is poised to make another run at the playoffs and hopefully get back to the Superbowl. If they defeat the St. Louis Rams on Sunday they will have clinched the NFC West title and have home field advantage throughout the playoffs and that would be awesome. Looking forward to the coming New Year and hope that all of you and your families will be well and prosperous. And oh yeah; GO HAWKS!!!
