This pair of osprey is one of the most dynamic osprey to watch. They fledged three young osprey again this year and had to constantly catch and bring in food for the three young birds. I saw one of the young osprey fly for the first time. It flapped and hopped up during a breezy day. The young bird ended up higher than it probably ever had been and it began to fly. The entire few minutes it was calling out and flying, trying to land a few times. Eventually it just crashed into the top of an oak tree that was full of leaves. It was an awesome moment for myself and all those aboard the boat to see this. i can't wait for the osprey to return next year. -Capt. Mike
