OSPREY ARE BACK !!!!!







The Osprey are back !!!   The female (we call Sibyl) came back March 28th.  On April 2nd, the male (we call Pliny) arrived.  You will note they have a wooden frame to build their nest in.  Last August there was a severe rain and windstorm that blew their nest away.  Sibyl, Pliny and their two babies made in through the storm.  After they left for the winter someone - I am not sure if it was the phone company or who built that wooden frame to protect future nests.  We weren't sure they would built in it when they came back - but they did.  The top three picture are of Pliny.  The lower four are of Sibyl.
I go by these Osprey every week or so.  It is hard with this new wooden nest to see if there are babies in it, but I will keep an eye on them.  Sure there will be future pictures.

Good Morning dynnamae n,
Glad they have safer nesting area, too. We thought we lost them after the storm last August, but somehow they made it through. Glad you like seeing the osprey - I like taking their pictures.
