There is a marsh in the ACE Basin of the South Carolina Lowcountry. I’ve visited it several times. Today I observed four Ospreys working it in search of a meal. They watch me, but are not afraid. They are curious. When our eyes meet through the camera lens, I smile. I call this place Osprey Heaven.
The site is a circular route across dikes remaining from old rice fields, on a Wildlife Management Area (WMA.) Getting to the place is a three mile round trip. I could walk it if I had to, but taking my bicycle is a lot easier on my bum ankle.
Besides Ospreys, a lot of other my other favorite birds call it home too.
Great Blue Heron, landing gear down.
Can’t wait to go back!
