June 29th, 2012 – Avian Friday: Mr. Osprey
Here is another image of the male Osprey I posted a couple of weeks ago. I haven’t had a chance to get back to check up on the family, but I imagine the chicks should be close to hatching by now if they haven’t already. It will be interesting to see if both the male and female will be hunting to feed the young ones. Up to this point, the female has stayed put in the nest incubating the eggs. In this image the male had just finished devouring a fish next to the nest and hopped up onto the perch to tidy himself up.
