This is the 2nd year in a row that an osprey couple is raising a family in the light post at work. The babies were pretty big by the time you could see them peeking out over the nest. I finally remembered to bring my camera to work and took the above after work. At first I thought there was only one baby, but there were two.
A few days later I was able to catch one of the babies being fed.
A few days after that, I caught the other parent flying in. He didn’t have a fish with him so I’m wondering if that’s why she was screaming at him.
The next week the babies were fully grown and looked just like the parents except they still have the white spots on their wings and orange eyes. Now the babies are flying around and every morning when I drive into the parking lot I see them on different light posts. When I leave after work, they are both back on nest for the night. Soon they will be gone for good and we’ll all be empty nesters in the parking lot.
Beautiful! Wonderful! Fantastic!
Have a great week-end!
amazing! what a wonderful sight you have every year going to work.
