weeks high in a tree
you spent waiting to use your wings
and sharp talons
I would see this bird high in a large tree for weeks during the spring on my walks along the river. When one day it actually took flight, diving into the river with those extremely sharp talons. I don't think it caught anything, but it was a joy to see it take flight and survive (I saw it again after that), but it's been months and I haven't seen it. At first I thought it was an eagle or hawk, but upon further investigation I think this is an Osprey Fledgling.
This is in gracious response to One Deep Breath. This week's topic is "Feathered Friends".
