Ospreys at Tin Can Bay - January 2014

During our visit to Tin Can Bay, Queensland in January 2014, we saw Ospreys galore in many locations along the shoreline. We witnessed them diving for fish, bringing food back to the nest and watched them overlooking the world below from their high perches.  One could never tire from watching these beautiful birds of prey.

I have included in this post a photo of the "Tourist Map" of Tin Can Bay that we were given at the Caravan Park in which we camped for our trip (see below). Note the right hand section that mentions the birdlife that can be seen in the area, in particular "Sea Hawks"!!  funnily we didn't see any of those during our trip :)
