Photo of the Week: Gone for Summer

Image of an empty osprey nest as winter approaches.

Taken just the other week during the Thanksgiving holiday.

A Thanksgiving postcard from the middle of the Bay. The blessing of mild weather and a calm Bay gave us an opportunity to make one last run for the season in Nana's skiff before Thanksgiving dinner.

Seen here, an osprey nest on the Uppards area of Tangier Island sits vacant, a sure sign that winter can't be too far off. We look forward to seeing these beautiful birds again next year.
