Bird Count at Plantation Preserve Linear Trail

It’s the 3rd day of the 19th annual Great Backyard Bird Count and I went back to Plantation Preserve Linear Trail to look for birds. I walked the 1.3 mile trail and did not see anything interesting. I spoke with someone at the end of the trail and he said he saw Red-shouldered Hawk and Belted Kingfisher a few days ago. As I was walking back to the car I saw a medium-sized bird flying nearby. I went looking for it and found what appeared to be a Red-shouldered Hawk. A short time later I spotted a Belted Kingfisher. Closer to the start of the trail I saw an Osprey with a fish in its talons.

The Hawk and Kingfisher was a good distance away so the images are small and not detailed. However the image of the Osprey was tack sharp.
