Field Note: The ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) are back! Every time I’ve stepped outdoors today I’ve heard their high skirling mating cries, or spotted them flying high overhead, or both. They are most welcome. They can be a bit bossy to the local bald eagles (who overwinter), but the eagles were getting slack and complacent and can use some competition.
