OspreyLand 2008 is open

Just like a amusement park in a seasonal area, OspreyLand is now open and will be open until the end of September.

Finally the 1st Osprey of 2008 arrived and went to their nest. Bad Luck was they showed up in the middle of the day and the sun was really bright. This pair 2 years ago raised 3 young ones and last year they raised 2 young ones. I don't know what they are going to do for fishing cuz the lake still has ice on it but is close to breaking up. About 1 mile away is the Chama river and they (I hope) will use that until the lake gets thawed out. I am going to go back out tomorrow and see if they are still hanging around their nest.

Here in our valley last year we had 15 pair of Osprey spend the summer and raise the young ones.


This is my favorite pair and I named them Maw & Pa Osprey. In case you don't know the difference that is Pa on the left. He is really a character and has Maw yelling at him about something most of the time.

Hi Ole, the female is larger and the feathers around her neck are wider & longer in fact we call her neck feather a squash blossom necklace.
