Osprey

They should arrive any day now.

First the male osprey arrives after wintering in South America, finds the nest from previous years, fluffs up the nest with more sticks and mud, then waits for the female to arrive.

Two feet tall, 6-7 foot wingspan …  an incredible animal to watch soar, dive for food and carry live fish back to the nest, as seen in the photo.
