OspreyLand-A Story-Ma & Pa Osprey

One of the things I noticed when going thru my Osprey photos and looking on the Internet most of the photos are of One Osprey I just could not many with the pair together.

Ok time to change that. Put the BIGMA in the camera wagon load up a thermos and off to the lake I go. My plan was to wait until they both were out of the nest and then pick a spot and and wait. It worked although the arrival of the 2nd one to the nest was much longer than I expected. Something over an hour. A great day for me I got to spend some quality time with my friends (The Osprey) out in the woods and the coffee was good.

Welcome to OspreyLand

Here is Pa coming home from work



Almost home it will be nice to see the little woman



Hi darling, its nice to be home after a hard day at work



Long day at work today. I hope you had a good day



How about before you settle in we take a short cruise together??



Wild, Free and together. Life is GOOD in OspreyLand



I hope you all enjoy this 1/2 as much as I did getting the photos and putting the story together.

TOTALLY WACKY roger

Hi Roger,

A great series -- but didn't you reverse the order of the first two shots? -- Doesn't matter tho --

Is that a man-made habitat? We have some around here for Herons where the tall dead trees have deteriorated to the point where they can't easily support those big nests, and naturalists have built some very high platforms nearby to supply nesting sights. The Great Blue Herons have happily adopted these and are currently making babies.

I'm sure that there are some Ospreys around here somewhere, but I've yet to be able to see one in the wild. Thanks for offering me the opportunity to see them through your excellent photos.

Hi Scott, I think you are right about #1 & #2 being mixed up. Yes the New Mexico State Parks & New Mexico Gam & Fish built a bunch of them around both our lakes and the Osprey took to them and seem real happy with them. Thanks for commenting and for looking.

The storybook tale makes it look like a made by Disney picture.

Great shots as well.
