Ranger Cove Osprey Family
I got to the cove to find Dad osprey sitting on one branch to the left of Brother Piper on the right.
They both looked at me, checked me out and then ignored me.
They sat there for more than 10 minutes. Once in a while Piper would look hard at Dad.
Finally Piper got tired of just waiting around and he left. Dad Osprey kept watching life flow by.
It was not until Dad Osprey took flight 12 minutes later that I realized he had been standing on a fish!
No wonder Piper kept looking hard at Dad.
As Dad took flight I heard Broken Feather. She got to the nest as Dad did with the fish.
Ranger Cove: Osprey Update
Every family should have portraits done and black and white is a great way to show detail.
Broken Feather: my what big feet you have!
Brother Piper: heading to the water to fish; alas I lost sight of him behind the trees.
Ranger Cove – Broken Feather Update
I watched as an unknown female osprey fledgling drifted into Ranger Cove.
Neither Ranger Cove parent osprey reacted.
But oh, did Broken Feather have something to say when the intruder tried to land in her nest.
From left to right: Piper, Broken Feather and the intruder thinking about landing.
The intruder realized it was headed for the wrong nest and quickly left.
Broken Feather was very proud of herself!
