When my friend Merry Robin took me to see Charlestown a couple of weeks ago, she also brought me down to the harbor to see what we could see. At Constellation Wharf I spotted three osprey flying around and diving into the river for fish. Osprey are fish hawks. They hunt and nest near all deep bodies of water, including the ocean. Unlike a Bald Eagle, which also eats fish, these birds have a white breast and body when seen from below with barred wings, blacks “wrists,” and a black mask on a white face.
