Osprey

I haven’t posted an update on the osprey for a while so here is a pen and ink for fun.  I think we have chicks in the nest, however we can’t see anything yet.

I think this parent is taking caring of a little bundle of joy.

The other parent waits patiently by the nest.

For about the last month a least one osprey has been hunkered down on the nest incubating the eggs.  Late last week this pattern changed and now there is a lot of fussing about going on.  I think they are feeding chicks or at least one chick.  The chicks will hatch about a week apart.

A view of the nest from the lumber yard.

The weather has been clear warm and windy here.  In fact it hit 100 degrees last weekend.  That is on the warm side this early in the year.  I think it is going to get really hot up on that tower.

Another sunny day and a view out over the back forty.

  1. Osprey are intriguing. There are several spots on Cape Cod with tall structures that the village “fathers” have built precisely for the purpose of attracting the osprey to build nests. The birds always seem to have a collection of viewers and photographers around. They are fascinating, beautiful creatures. I love your drawing!

  2. Wonderful drawing. We’ve got a nest of hawks perched on top of a huge stadium light across the street from where I live. It’s incredible.

    • Thank you very much, what a kind thing to say. I can say the same about your photography. I don’t take a lot of people, part of the nature of my job I suppose, but I love your candid street shots in particular.
