Osprey Mama

There is a nest high on the top of a pole that is for an osprey family. We watched the nest last year and saw several youngsters. When we needed to go north to pick up a grandchild for their stay at the condo with Grandma and Grandpa, we decided to check it out and see if there was anything going on this year.

The nest is right next to an exit off of US1. If you drive off on the exit and go half way up the ramp to get back on, you can actually look down on the nest. You really need binoculars or a telescopic lens on your camera to make out the birds in the nest.

Mama osprey was sitting on the nest so I'm guessing in a few weeks we will see some furry heads bobbing around in there waiting for the busy parents to feed them. We'll keep watch.
