Osprey Flyovers on the Rogue and Klamath Rivers, April 2023

We know it’s special when they fly right over us and are not simply looking for a meal.  This happened last year at Ti’lomikh on the day The Osprey’s Path was activated at the three major mountains that point directly to Ti’lomikh, and again this year.
In 2022, Ospreys flew over people two different times.
In 2023, an Osprey circled 3 times over the women praying with their families at Ti’lomikh, and twice over the women praying at the Klamath River.
Four Cow Creek Takelma women were at the Klamath River at a basket-weaving gathering sponsored by the Karuk, in the heart of the “Fix the World” country along the mighty Klamath River.  Two months later, the first dam of 4 dams was taken down, opening up original habitat twice that currently existing to the specially prized, and threatened, Spring Salmon.
The Klamath River is one place in the world where Wovoka’s Ghost Dance Prophecy of Return is coming true. The sacred bird of the Yuroks on the coast, the Condor, have been brought back home in the last year. Tracked by a woman biologist, Condors were brought back from extinction via captive breeding many years ago. Restoration takes time, so it picks up momentum!
