I saw this bird on the south end of Industrial Park Rd about a month ago and thought it might be some type of falcon. I went home and did some research and I think it is an osprey. It was a really big bird and I could not thinking of where there was a large water source was around there sufficient for its habitat. Someone said there are osprey poles/nests on the Mattabassett river somewhere.
Maybe he was just out for a stroll.
