While dad stood watch, momma osprey decided it was time to redecorate the nest. With three new little ones, some changes needed to be made.
She took 2 trips from the nest to gather material.
Dad decided he should probably help out and brought back a nice big twig.
With the two of them working together, it didn’t take long to get the nest the way they wanted it.
Now mom had time to take care of the little ones.

These are great, Maralee! That built-in perch for dad to sit on and watch over the family is pretty neat. Hopefully these nestorations will help keep the little ones secure. It’s amazing how flimsy Osprey sometimes make their nests.
Unfortunately one of the babies fell out of the nest. We don’t know how it happened. I just hope the other two stay safe.
Oh, I hate to see that, but know it happens regularly with the herons and egrets. Probably a good thing you weren’t there to witness it.
I suppose with a third baby they were in need of another bedroom.
