Osprey sight brings bonus flight

Eastern Osprey (Pandion cristatus) on driftwood and in air offers bonus sight along Lucinda sandspit today.

Target bird, leucistic Eastern Curlew (Numenius madagascariensis), showed up and showed out, but did not allow any closeups.

It really does look odd, doesn't it!

Leucistic birds are especially interesting. We had a leucistic American Robin in our neighborhood this year.
