Osprey is Back!!

Kayaking in the South River on Tuesday, 9 March, we were looking for an osprey, since we had seen or heard individual birds since Sunday.

Saw nothing, but paddled over to see if there was any nest-building sign on mark #15 (in front of the Londontown House) where there is usually a nest. All of a sudden this fine guy started swooping around the mark, making three or four attempts to land before finally sticking it. He then proceeded to holler at me to assert his prior claim to the mark as prime nesting area. I figure he’s waiting for the lady bird to come along and will let her build the nest. (That’s the way I’d do it anyway.)
