Birds, Scenery, Dragonfly - 25 October 2015

Outing on the 25th was pretty good.
We saw more birds than we expected.
We were surprised to see an Osprey perched on the top of a tower at a distance. We waited for almost 2 hours hoping it would take flight and fly our way. It finally did take flight but flew away from us and disappeared behind some trees. A few minutes later I thought I saw it flying down the lake toward us but it turned out to be a Bald Eagle. I then wondered if the Osprey had seen the Bald Eagle and departed.
