This morning we planned to attend a seminar on boat maintenance at the Laguna Madre Yacht Club here in Port Isabel. We arrived just before 10AM and took a seat next to Skip and Nancy Maggard. Skip tells us that there is an Osprey caught on a sailboat mast just outside the club. This is what I found when I went outside to see.
But with encouragement and urging from the gallery, he climbed up high enough to reach the Osprey. Of course the Osprey was not really sure he wanted Ryan on that mast with him.
It took several minutes, but Ryan finally freed the bird, minus one talon.
