I have seen this bird several times sitting on the same limb above a creek and remembered to take my camera today. Pics aren't great but maybe good enough to ID the critter. This is in Madison Co and I have never seen one here before if this is what it is.
Thanks wildcat. I just looked it up and saw that it was an osprey and you posted before I could. Anyway, that's the first one I've seen around here. Pretty neat bird. If you zoom in on the pic, it appears to have some meat/fish in it's talons.
KY and Barkley lakes plus the rivers around here are covered up with them. Most of the super-structure bridges have multiple nests on top of them.

This one was hanging around the pier at Gulf Shores...
Looks like an osprey to me.
Yep it is an Osprey. Beautiful birds! We have several at work that hang around the lake at the park.
