Nine years after Morning Call, the osprey sculpture created by artist Roberto Julio Bessin, first perched on Greenport’s waterfront, it flew via helicopter Thursday morning to Jean Cochran Park in Peconic, where it now stands as the town’s 9/11 memorial.

Suffolk Times contributing photographer Katharine Schroeder documented the Osprey’s departure from Greenport, while editor Tim Kelly captured its landing in Peconic.
