Over night, the temperature had dipped down into the 30's and a light breeze made it feel a little colder.
The school ospreys are very acclimated to humans, so they pretty much go about their ospreyish business without paying much attention to we of the wingless clan.
Occasionally, gangs of bald eagles will swoop in to harass the schoolyard ospreys, but it never seems to come to blows.
A few weeks ago 3 eagles were strafing the two ospreys as they sat on their ball field light post nest.
By the time I realized what was happening outside the lab and grabbed my camera, they were sailing off, leaving the ospreys frazzled, but not harmed.
I think it was a case of mullet envy.
