Just before we got to the Quintana Neotropic Bird Sanctuary on the weekend, we came across an Osprey perched on a tall utility post.

It was bending over and pulling pieces off some type of prey that it was holding with its talons.






Whatever it was trying to eat didn't seem to go down very easily.

In fact, it wasn't until it have finally managed to swallow that the Osprey had time to look around and notice us.

Beautiful series of pictures of a great bird, one of the "comeback kids" in the world of birds.
