A Denizen…

osprey1webOur peek at Peterborough in 1909 will be delayed until tomorrow, but in the meantime I thought I’d invite you to check out one of the critters that inhabits our fair city.  That’s an osprey, of course (pandion haliaetus), and this particular specimen was photographed at Trent University earlier this afternoon.  Click on, for a couple more photographs!

All three photos by Patrick Conway, and can be clicked on to see a larger version.

Do come back tomorrow, when we discuss what Peterborians were up to this week 106 years ago!

    “Osprey looking one way. Osprey looking the other way.” That amused me more than it should. It’s like you’re taking mug shots of it.
