"What's Happening on the Hudson River in April"

"...Osprey and harriers hunt from the air over backwaters and bays, along with double-crested cormorants, seeking larger prey, like menhaden, goldfish, and gizzard shad. It is not unusual to see a bald eagle dive-bombing them to steal a fish."

Interesting, four (4) V-22 Ospreys landed at Quantico, Virginia yesterday, in the news, they're said to be headed for Iraq in September. More from "The Hudson River Almanac" at the NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation site.
