Amazing series Roger!! :| Thank you so much for posting these. It's very educational to witness these interactions between the ospreys - I had no idea that they were so combative amongst themselves.Great job. Cheers, Dan
It was a exciting time for me.

Absolutely superb sequence, Roger, without a doubt, and a great story. :!:

However, I have been cogitating this for a while, because I have some trouble telling the players without a program. Even though the spotting on the breasts is variable, one with heavy spotting arranged in a collar or necklace- like pattern is supposed to be a female, and if that is so, then by rights the attacker sure looks like it should be a female! So what is going on? :?: The only possibilities I can come up with would relate to who was who and where last year - in other words was this nest hers last year? Or was Pa her mate last year - if so why didn't she attack the other female? Or were all of the other nest platforms occupied? - but then her mate should have been the one trying to take it over. And the female with Pa in the third thread in this little drama does not appear to be the attacking one, so "tough love" is not the answer. A great mystery! :?

Do you have pictures of the occupants of this nest last year to compare?

I looked at the photos I kept from last year and I just can't tell. I also think the attacker was a female.

I'm just flabbergasted Rocky, we have a bunch of Osprey around here and I've never seen anything like it!
keep up the great work.
