The Osprey Nest

Much better result than March 27 this afternoon with a longer lens.
To my surprise they are looking at a Red Tail Hawk Nest about 50 yards away.

There goes the neighborhood! Nice capture of these two watchful parents.

Impressive shot of these two, Walter!
RTHs are infamous for nest robbing of offspring.
Am sure the Osprey know that and both will not leave
the nest at the same time until the young are fledged and can fly.
