|Doesn't he look threatening?|
Later I rode my bike past the school (yes, there is one school on the island which houses K-12 and it's not very large) and heard that warning cry, but I was too far from the boardwalk. I stopped and looked up to see that another pair of osprey have set up housekeeping in a nest atop a utility pole behind the athletic field. In this case one of the pair was on the nest and the mate was on a pole closer to the road shouting out warnings to trespassers. I just had to laugh. If my Will knew he'd get to see osprey on the nests everyday he'd be rushing to school!
|Look closely atop the poles|
|See the nest? And the lookout on the nearby pole?|
|Looks messy doesn't it?|
