osprey family report: ow, ow, ouch

Ow, ow, ouch!
The hazards of being a parent.
The fledgling was trying to grab a fish from dad’s talon
but got dad’s toe instead – in a very tight sharp hold.
Dad had to jerk several times before the fledgling let go.
He was dangling that foot for a few wing flaps as he flew away
but had the leg back in its place quickly.
