Osprey adding to nest

By: Pat Coate

I am so glad I decided to set aside weekend chores for a bit and squeeze in some birding because I had a wonderful encounter with this osprey. Though I am sure it was aware of my presence, it did not seem to mind me watching it. I spent about 30 minutes watching and got to see it repeatedly snap off branches and carry them to this nest. There was only one osprey present, so I presume this is the male prettying up the place for the female’s arrival.

  1. Pat, you’ve taken some wonderful pictures!! I am loving them. Our resident osprey resides on the open ocean side of the little island out front, so I don’t get to observe this!

  2. I think I have pictures of that same nesting site. Very cool! Your pictures are much better than mine.
