An Osprey or Sea Hawk/Sea Eagle, was spotted perched on the top of a street light pole near Lake Sumter in The Villages, Florida (near Live Oak Park on Morse Avenue). I saw the big bird of prey a few weeks ago. It was just hanging out resting and after about five minutes, it flew off.
Interestingly, after the Osprey was gone, a Common Crow flew up and took its place. Popular spot! I have also spotted Osprey several times near the nearby area close to the bridges and Sunset Point. Osprey are spectacular fishers and interesting to watch. I was glad to have seen this one. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger picture. Enjoy!
