Another Osprey – Is It Olivia?
I kept an eye out most of the day yesterday and did not see an osprey on our nest, only a large black bird twice and a seagull. Maybe my sighting Saturday was a transient just stopping for a rest.
And then this morning at dawn, we had a female osprey on the nest. You can tell it’s a female by the speckled chest or ‘necklace’ she has. A male is only faintly spotted. Is this Olivia?? I’m not sure as yet, but if she continues to revisit the nest, I will review photograph comparisons between last year’s and more photos I capture. I took most shots through my glass slider so she wouldn’t see me. She stayed for a few minutes, started chirping and then took flight up and over our community.
I can’t wait to get home from work and see if she’s still around. (yes I’m blogging at work to put the word out….ssshhhh don’t tell the boss!) 🙂 Check back and I’ll keep you posted!
