Osprey on the nest

Osprey on the nest
I'd only once called in to see this pair of Osprey, but yesterday (14 August 2013), I took my camera and tried to get a few shots. The nest is built on an extremely tall pole down in the south part of Calgary and I couldn't even see how many Osprey there were actually up there. I did see both adults, as a second one flew in after the one on the nest gave a few calls. I would imagine there are young ones up there, too, but I couldn't see any sign of them. Posted for the record of when I saw them., not for the quality of the image : )

I just love Ospreys, as you probably know! I think it's wonderful that you know of this nest and that you were able to get this picture of one on the nest! I cannot get shots this close (even cropped) of the nest that I visit every year. If I am lucky I do get other shots on fence posts or a telephone post though. They do like to nest up very high, that's for sure!

Haha ... a traditional Osprey nest ... a terrific capture of this one Anne ... and I am so glad that many people are restoring this beautiful bird of prey in many parts of NA after being devastated by DDT ... I see many man-made structures for Osprey to build their nests in shallow lakes around Southern Ontario ...
