Osprey Update

A couple of weeks ago, I shared news that osprey had built a nest on the breakwater at the marina in front of our house.

Since we discovered the nest, we’ve tried to determine the best location for photographing it. I believe this picture was taken from one of our upstairs windows.

I took this one morning around sunrise from our deck.

Knowing very little nothing about ospreys and their nests, I have to wonder how concerned they’ll be as, with the warmer weather, the water and marina get busier with people.  The nest is so close to the dock.

This was yesterday afternoon.

In the summer months, this is a very busy area with boaters and sunbathers. I hope the osprey don’t mind a crowd in their neighborhood.
