Osprey On Piling
Apparently they do migrate - they leave for a few months in the winter.

Osprey Chick On Piling
This normally isn't enough information to identify a bird. Only because the local "wildlife here" signs specifically mentioned the Osprey nests on the pilings and it's obviously not a bald eagle am I willing to call it.

Two Osprey And A Bald Eagle
We counted between four and six (probably six) Osprey in the pilings on the Vancouver side of the Fraser. From this picture, it's hard to believe you are looking at the city of Vancouver.

Purple Martin Nest Boxes
I was surprised how willing these birds were to just sit here and hang out. There was a bit of chasing females, but basically everyone was just hanging out.
