Osprey and the Woodpecker

Tigger and I were putting in some bench time watching the ever growing flocks of geese on the river in Dorchester Ontario when an Osprey caught a fish in the river. It flew into a tree about a block from us and started to have lunch. I had a 300 mm on the camera but no tripod so I shot hand held. I go a bonus when a red bellied wood pecker flew into the frame and settled down to explore for insects. After it finished the fish, and pretty much relaxed for about half an hour until a murder of crows came along harassing a hawk. They went by the Osprey and did not see it so it slipped away.
