Nesting Diaries

3/26/12 - Male osprey brought in a fish and hadn't quite let go of it. The young osprey managed to get hold of it as well. The male took off with the fish and with the chick still attached. He dropped the fish and the baby and then dove down to get the fish. We put the baby back 3/27/12 at noon.
