For weeks now at the local Osprey nest, it’s been all about…
What a fascinating process, watching the osprey chicks slowly begin to learn just what those WINGS are for!
(Lots more photos to come!)
Someone once asked me if I was ever able to capture our local Mamma Osprey feeding her young.
Because of the angle/distance I have to shoot at from below the nest, for a very long time the chicks were impossible to see during feedings.
And by the time they grew tall enough to be seen in the nest, they were pretty much feeding themselves.
Today, for whatever reason, one hungry chick that appears to be the smallest of them all…
Well the baby O’s sure are growing, looking more adult like with each passing day.
When I pull in to visit, I usually find them perching along the edge of the nest.
Their keen focus something they have learned from Mamma O.
And they wait.
Keeping their eyes to the skies.
