One sign of spring is the return of ospreys from their winter grounds in South America to their home on the Chesapeake Bay. Some of the birds are now on their way to Virginia.
The 2,200 mile trip takes about two weeks for the osprey, also called fish hawks. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has been tracking four birds for nearly a year-since they last arrived on the Bay. Spokesman John Rodenhausen says Woody and Nick are already on their way back; the other two birds have yet to begin their trip.
