Osprey Sighting at Grasonville/Kent Narrows!
WOOHOO! Let the trumpets sound! It is official!! 🙂
For the last week, I have had my eye to the sky and at least a dozen Osprey nesting locations in my local area, searching for a first sighting on the return of our Osprey. This overcast, rainy afternoon it became official. I captured an Osprey on his highway sign on Rt. 50/301 through the Grasonville/Kent Narrows, Maryland. This is one of three active nests along this corridor area.
This next photo shows a full view of the highway with his nest, quite a bit still intact from the harsh winter.
Normally, we see our area Osprey returning March 12-15th. This specific male Osprey has repeatedly returned a bit early year after year to secure and protect his nest until his mate returns. I missed documenting last year’s arrival, but he returned in 2013 on March 5th.
Welcome back, Mr. Osprey! 🙂
