Annual Osprey time (the aircraft - not the bird)
« on: May 24, 2017, 11:18:40 AM »
I heard a familiar sound overheard on Monday, but saw nothing in the sky because it was foggy. It happened more than once - almost consecutively.

The third time was the charm. I could barely make out something in the sky and took a picture in that direction. If you squint at the first image below, you might be able to make out that it's an Osprey and there are usually a few in the sky around Memorial Day, using Teterboro as a base. So I'm guessing what I heard were 3 of them arriving.

I heard the sound again yesterday coming from east of me and took the picture of one somewhere over Teaneck (I think).

I suspect you'll be hearing them more often between now and Monday.

What - no pictures of Ol' Homer the Shore bird letting loose in Manasquan?

Nah, Ol' Homer preferred hangin' at the joints after making the shape at the docks in Hoboken.

One came semi-close to me after takeoff this morning (1) and then headed east (2).

Half an hour later - just before noon - I saw one over the hospital (3).

Around 4pm, another was headed back to Teterboro (4 - crappy shot of the aircraft).

Got a little better shot the next day of the aircraft buzzing the courthouse (and poor Enlightenment).
