OspreyLand - X rated Part 1 (8)

I had a request for some Osprey Mating photos, so off to OspreyLand I went to do some X rated photos. I was able to capture this pair mating two different times over about 5 hours of watching.

A couple of things I noticed:

1. When finished the male does not push up but pushes straight out to begin flying.

2. He also does not start to climb right away like he normally does.

3. Both times He went straight down to the lake and started fishing.

4. They are very vocal while mating.

5. The male does not raise his feet and pull them up underneath him when flying away.

1.


2.
Notice he is very careful with his Talons


3.


4.


5.


6.


7.


8.


Part 2 later

Awesome series Roger. Many thanks for the look at Osprey mating behavior.

I don't understand why this series hasn't gotten more replies. Anytime one sees behavioral photos as these, it is a rare treat! Great captures!

Cheers...Don
