OspreyLand-Afternoon Delight (Mating)

Ma Dam flew over to this pole from their nest and started calling and Pa Dam left the tree he was on about 200 yards away and headed towards the pole where Ma Dam was.

"An Osprey's mating call consists of a brief "hew" and is repeated many times. To mate, the male has to get on top of the female's back. The female has to bring her tail up while the male brings his down. When mating, Osprey have to be careful about hurting each other. For example, a male will ball up his feet to avoid hurting the female with his talons during mating"

The look on the female's face in #4 is amusing. Great set of pics.

Hey Roger, great series. I've never seen that before with any raptor. The look on her in pic #4, suggests she's just seen you taking pics of the event! :shock:

Really enjoy your stuff, Rog. Cheers, Dan
