The Grand Old Osprey Nest in ......
Sidney, B.C. not far from the various eagle nests also in Sidney, B.C. The eagles and their young have all flown away but the osprey families are still here.
Right now the osprey babies have learned to fly and it is fun to watch them fly and land.
They are the most vocal of all babies and still peep constantly for their meals. They seem to want to express all their desires in peeping all day long. There are many houses nearby and it must be very noisy for the residents. The ones I talked to seem to like them a lot.
The landing choices and procedures are not quite polished yet. This nest is a very happy reliable nest. It usually has two babies, I think it had four babies this year! I missed the whole season with the ospreys this year so I am not sure how many babies they had!
I am not sure how long this nest has been there, but as long as I can remember. In the winter the ospreys fly to Mexico so we do not see them again until summer when they return. Sadly one of the nests I watch each year did not have any babies that survived this year.
Another nest has two babies but all the branches and nest material has been removed. I made a call and they told me that the birds cleared off the nest area completely themselves when the osprey young were fledging. They don't usually do that but I guess it was house cleaning day.
