    Hi Vinnie,
    Love the photo. I’ve seen that same bird harassing a heron on the marsh on front of my home on shelter island. The heron was just fishing and I couldn’t figure what was upsetting the redwing so much. We also have an osprey nest on a little barrier Island we have across from our marsh. I think I’ll never get a photo as nice as yours of the feeding. Was that a snapper, do you think? I’ve seen them bring the fish he, but never gotten close with a camera. Yours is great. I have to order it.

    Hi Jim,
    Thanks for the comments. Not sure what you mean by snapper. Hope all is well with you and the family.
