Longing for Ospreys – Day 75

For some reason this year I am pining for the return of the ospreys, more than ever before.

I cannot WAIT to hear their cries fill our salty skies once again, watch them as they raise their families against all odds.

It won’t be long now, and THIS little guy…

Will be getting an eviction notice on his winter rental…

From the summer osprey occupants, upon their return back to the Wychmere South nest!  😉


Ospreys at Forest Beach Marsh – From a Distance

Life goes on this spring for the Ospreys over at Forest Beach marsh.

The May marsh is greening up at last, and many of the ospreys are on their eggs now.

Some of the aerial dramas are pretty dynamic this year as others continue to jockey for the best spot.

Or for any spot, for that matter, with real estate scarce and more ospreys than ever!

Some of the nests this year seem awfully near to the ground, and vulnerable to predators like racoons…

While it’s nice to see our osprey population here on the Cape doing well again, I guess even for our feathered friends it’s tough to find affordable rentals here on Cape Cod!   😉
