    lately i've been traveling a certain road where i spot eagles almost daily, but never find myself in a good position for a shot though. this morning i saw this thing and can't identify it. i know it's not a hawk. does anyone recognize what it may be? this was on the chesapeake bay bridge in MD. sorry for the poor quality...i shot thru the windshield almost directly into the sun. thanks for your help.

    You were right the first time Raymond.
    It's an Osprey.

    I turned up the contrast a lot in PS and it does have the markings of an Osprey.

    Also, Bald Eagles do not have crossing wing tips. Although Bald Eagles DO have that fish hook beak.

    Great capture JonMikal!
    I've only seen one or two of those down here. I did get to see one catch a fish though. :)
