The male osprey should arrive from South America in the next ten days or so to the nest near my house. He arrives in advance of his girlfriend to prepare the nest. He cleans it and repairs it. And waits for her to fly home.
Just picture this magnificent bird with its huge wing span, wearing a French maid outfit, vacuuming the nest, waiting for the girlfriend to also fly in from South America for some hot sex.
We drive by this nest at least twice a day. At this time of year, we look carefully for the arrival of the male, then the female. And in a few months, the arrival of baby osprey that will fledge and fly south to South America in the fall and return next spring.
