Hi, bad shot I know but I was in a hurry, I was just wondering what kind of birds these are?

Thanks

They look like Osprey to me. I lightened the picture and they both appear to be Ospreys. The one on the right is for sure.

My best bet is that the smaller bird is a Red-tailed Hawk harassing a Osprey?

Thanks, I found the nest hopefully will get some better pics. They sure are camera shy.

After some curve adjustments I think Nymph is right, they both look like osprey, and the right one looks like it has a fish.

I'm siding with Mike. The dude has been ID'ing BOP's since he was in elementary school. Plus, look at the tail feather features. Left bird is definitely an RTH.

I brought it into photoshop and and made some adjustments and it sure looks like Mike was correct.
