Clue/Question:  The osprey artist created original paintings and planned to – – –

Seattle Seahawks Logo Vector EPS Free Download, Logo, Icons, Brand Emblems  | Seattle seahawks logo, Seattle seahawks, Nfl teams logos

Answer:  HAWK THEM

(Back to the straight forward stinky pun!  No misdirection, or ambiguity today.  I believe that the word hawk was the answer in a recent LA Times crossword puzzle, for to aggressively sell.  The osprey is certainly an aggressive bird of prey.  According to good old Wikipedia, they are also known as:  sea hawk, river hawk, and fish hawk.  It’s easy to see why they’re the logo/team name of the Seattle Seahawks!  Boy, have they started hot!

There were no new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  But, we’ve definitely seen “simaco” before.  Which is fine by me, because I love the word “mosaic”.  The answer letter layout is a great eight letter jumble.  Wonderfully cryptic. 

Fun cartoon of talking birds.  The painter especially looks like an osprey.  Maybe he’s Bob Rossprey!  He’s painting puffy little clouds, and happy little trees.  And probably, very unhappy little fish.  Another great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I live 200 yards from the Atlantic Ocean on the Outer Banks of NC, and here, osprey are gods-in-feathers, or in Latin for “birds of prey”: “numquid avis tincta.”

    Anybody here who places a higher priority on nature than capitalism is rooting/fighting for osprey to prevail against the odds. They were endangered, but they’re coming back.

    They migrate in here in mid-March, right around or shortly after St. Patrick’s Day.

    They migrate out from here in early September, headed back to South America, in early September.

    Like sea turtles, they tend to return to their innate or longstanding family nests.

    Our last sighting of osprey here this year came right around early Labor Day, with a mother osprey (the largest of the family) flying and monitoring, while a juvenile osprey or spring nestling was flying away from a nearby cellphone tower where the family nest is located, year-in and year-out, towards the ocean.

    The juvenile was “CHEEPING!” again and again, as if to say,”Sheeee-yat, You gotta be kiddin’ me, I’ve gotta fly like this all the way to South Freakin’ America??”

    /they do not land during their migration from here to there.
