This osprey was captured emitting cries of warning to vultures harassing the osprey nest. Shortly after I snapped this photo, one of the osprey pair gave chase to the vultures while executing some amazing aerial maneuvers. The osprey was photographed atop its nest near the marina at Flamingo, Florida in The Everglades National Park.
