>From 7:15 a.m. to 8:50 this morning I watched 6 Osprey at the Stratford Greenway fly from light pole to light pole (stadium lights) at DeLuca field behind animal control. One would fly to a pole and several others would follow and land on the lights.  Then one took off over the cove at the Greenway and a few followed.   Just before I had to leave for work one caught a fish but was just flying around with it, landing on a light pole and then another while the 3 of the others sat on top of the lights watching.  It didn't seem there was a big difference in size between the six of them.  Three were a bit larger. Would this have been a family out for a morning of lessons? I would think it would be too soon? 

Thanks for any insight.
