Osprey with a transmitter Sturgeon Lake August 4, 2010

While Janice and I were driving all over looking for birds of prey, pretty birds and wildlife we notice that one of the ospreys had a transmitter on his back. I emailed to the Friends of the Osprey (see link below) and they were very excited about 2 osprey being tagged. Now they will know where the osprey go for the winter.
Please check out the link. Janice pulled off what to do if you find a injured osprey. Lots of great information on the site.
