With a knowledgeable skipper, his wife (also a talented photograOspreypher), and a couple of companions from Hilton Head, our voyage promised a day filled with exciting encounters and valuable insights.

As we ventured into the estuaries, our eyes scanned the waters in anticipation of spotting these majestic creatures.

An early mWelcomeorning cup of coffee on your Daufuskie Island porch awakens your senses as you begin a typical spring day like many Americans. Yet, in the absence of rumbling motors and horns, you hear an osprey’s babies chirping for breakfast from their eyries.
