It was such a treat when we started to see some big branches way up on top of the electric pole near where we live by the beach. We had seen the Osprey bringing branches up there when they started to build it a few seeks ago. It took them a good week plus more to finish and “move in.” (Click on blog link for other photos.)
And now when I ride by early in the morning, the female is sitting up on the nest while the male is perched on the dead tree branch nearby.
We watch him fly out over the water and bring back fish to the nest during the day. It’s been so much fun to watch. I can’t wait until the eggs hatch and we can watch the little ones!
What a wonderful experience!
PS We never did get to see the Osprey and their chicks as they left the nest about 2 weeks after this post. I have no idea what happened to them or where they went.
