Redecorating the Nest

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.

  1. 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.

I'd love to hear from you
