Osprey Action



Ospreys are plentiful around my house. There are actually nests every 1/4 mile for several miles. They have been partaking in nesting activities for several months. I haven't, however, seen or heard any babies in any of the nests.



Two's company, three's a crowd...yup...these Ospreys aren't fond of visitors. 


They usually quickly escort unwanted intruders away...


...with a stern warning to stay away or else!


The happy couple back together!


Dinner time!


I captured this Osprey yesterday evening enjoying its dinner as the sun was setting!

  3. Hey Tammy,
    These shots are so amazing!! It must be great to see these birds in real and to go photographing them so well. The first in his flight with spread wings is very wonderful, just like the last. Your new banner at the top of your blog is of high quality!!
    It's always a pleasure to see your special shots Tammy, well done!!

    Many greetings,
    Marco

  16. Superb series on my favorite bird!

    Any bird that is so much like me, lives in the sticks and eats seafood all day, can't be all bad!

    Have a great weekend, Tammy!

  30. The noise the babies make is enough to make you want to move anyway Tammy, but nice to see the adults fly so close by, must be lots of water and food near also.
