Osprey at Kensington

A morning trip to Kensington Metropark, April 4, to check out the new osprey hacking platform. Action not captured included dive-bombing onto neighboring geese, and dealing with an intruder osprey, and sandhill crane overflights. Photographers outnumbered osprey, at times, by as much as 8:2, but osprey seemed reasonably cool about the situation. The chicks should be adorable...
