BUFFALO, NY-- A local photographer captured a rare encounter recently at the Tifft Farm Nature Preserve.

Officials at the Preserve say an osprey pair are currently nesting on top of a platform that rests on top of a utility pole near Lake Kirsty on the grounds.

Recently Nathan Johnson managed to capture a picture of one of the osprey and a bald eagle crossing paths.

Folks at the Preserve say bald eagle sightings have increased over the past few years, but are still not a common sight.
