05/22/15 Osprey and Friends at Island Beach

Posted: May 24, 2015 in Uncategorized

The male Osprey was very busy out at Spizzle Creek on Friday. The male made several trips to bring sticks back to the nest. Each time he returned, he spent several minutes tucking it in and re-arranging it to get it just perfect … then the female moved it. This was amusing to watch over and over again. The egrets also put on quite a show.
