3.28.12 Down By the River the Osprey Fly

28 Mar

The girls and I went down to the river to try and see if their were any new Osprey babies. Mr. Osprey was not very happy that we were there and circled us angrily.

My Osprey

We have another platform in the neighborhood on top of a telephone pole for another family of Osprey. As the girls and I were walking home past that other platform, one of the parents swooped down with a fish in it’s talons (it looked like a Sunny) and then took off without giving it to the babies (I assume because it saw us).  The babies were peeping like crazy.  That is how we knew they were even there, because that platform is so high up we can’t see into it like we can the water platform.  I wish I was able to take a picture of the Osprey with the fish, but with 2 leashes, the rain, and the speed of the Osprey (the new phone s still hard to handle), I just was not quick enough.

The other night the Osprey were screeching for a long time near mid-night and I never knew why.

I love where I live.  Thank you mother nature for all your gifts.

Just another dogdaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Lucky you!

    We have a nest of Bald Eagles not too far from our home that we like to check on occasionally. Sadly, their nest (and huge Sycamore tree it was in) came down in a storm last weekend.

      How sad. Hope no life was lost and that the Eagles find a new home. – DogDaz

    That’s awesome, we don’t live anywhere near where we might see Osprey, but I bet one of the dogs would chase them if we did. 🙂
