After seeing the Osprey the last time I was at Reimers Ranch, I went back again on October 13 just in case it may still be around. I didn’t intend to hike or travel very far in my search as I knew that I could see the river at about the same spot as I saw the bird before from the Upper Trail that extends the full length of the Park on the bank overlooking the Pedernales.
Unfortunately, there was no sign of anything that even closely resembled that beautiful bird as long as you don’t count the Buzzards and there were plenty of them floating around in the skies above the river. I hung around for a while but the eagle never showed up. I took the panoramic picture above from six individual shots and then worked on them in Lightroom.
So, even though the Osprey never showed, the day was not entirely wasted.
