OSPREY – Right on time again this year (and every year)
Yesterday a single male osprey arrived. More will arrive over the next week. It’s a thrill every year to see their arrival. Every spring, in late March the osprey return to Rhode Island. They fly from their South American winter habitat back home to summer Rhode Island. Come October they make the return trip to South America.
And so, every March and October marks the arrival and departure of this magnificent bird.
The male always arrives first and the female arrives a couple of days later.
They return to the same nest year after year.
I snapped this photo last year when I unexpectedly saw this osprey land on the dead branch. Lucky shot.
