Osprey/World Birds

 Osprey removing leaves

Nest building, nest cleaning...the ospreys living atop a soccer field light standard near where I live are busy, busy, busy.

 She's off 

 And away she goes

Then returns empty hand...er..clawed

Great shots. Do ospreys use the same nest from year to year?

If not for eagles, ospreys would be king of the birds, don't you think?

Great pics. It takes a lot of work to build a nest just right.

Nice pictures - one of the things I like about ospreys is that people all over the world can see them and they are the same species.
