Osprey Around Kent Narrows Area
I had last updated that it appeared there was a loss on the Osprey chick(s) over across Marshy Creek at the CBEC nest platform. Unfortunately, something did happen as the Osprey couple are no longer active with their nest. They come and go from it but use it for rest & eating. They also continue to use our platform for the same reasons, sometimes together. In the meantime, we have Osprey everywhere. You may not see one flying around at a moment’s notice but it’s certainly not very hard to hear one crying out a warning as boats pass by their nests on the channel markers. Here are a few photos I’ve captured recently from my balcony.
I heard a splash and captured this next Osprey coming up out of the water.
Who could blame him with such a gorgeous ending to a beautiful day….
