The famous osprey nest at Fort Desoto. It’s on top of the old smokestack right at the fishing pier and snack shop. It’s a very visible nest. I think they have the best spot in the park to watch the sun go down every night. It looks like they have eggs. It’s very high up so the babies will have to be pretty big to see them looking over the edge. It looks like the one in the middle was already sleeping.

“Someone turn out the light.” yells the royal tern.
I think this is an immature herring gull.
Who’s going to win this race? I think they were both heading back in before dark.

It was a perfect night.

It was a perfect night when I ran down to Fort Desoto after work to look for little birds migrating through in early April. After searching the woods for an hour, I headed to the fishing pier for sunset. This has to be one of the best places in the area to watch the sun go down.
