2016 Hamlin Park nest

I am an OSPREY you can see
I like to nest up high
I have to live near water
Now I will tell you why

My food of choice why it is Fish
I’m called a bird of Prey
Well FISH HAWK is what I am called
The fish can’t get away

I hover up above them
Then plunge so swiftly down
My long sharp talons grasp the fish
I do not make a sound

I feed them to my babies
I usually have three
Their colors all are brown and white
Well HEY they look like me

I like to live on tops of trees
On telephone poles and such
And now I’m on your playfield light
I thank you very much

Jean Monce Bryant
