Oliver & Olivia – July 2010
Our osprey family’s photos for July show how much our two chicks learned in such a short time with a lot of flight, more growth, eating, and trying to stay cool in the extreme heat we had. By July 7th and 8th, each chick had fledged and began quick flights and returns while they mastered flying. They also started learning to dive into and lift out of the water, including just floating around and cooling off. You can just tell they are enjoying themselves! There was so much activity this month, it was very difficult to narrow down the number of photos to show you, many are sequence shots. I hope I didn’t overdo your viewing!
