Super shot Debra. I like the long feathers at the wings tip. I will be a fan for the follow up on the osprey family. I hope you like writing it because I enjoy reading it. Have a good time.

Thank you Yves. I do plan to keep following up on this Osprey family. I will continue to post pictures with comments throughout the summer and until the last Osprey leaves usually anywhere between the September long weekend and mid September.

The male Osprey cautiously returns to the nest with mud and leaves to pack the bottom of the nest. The female is down low in the nest trying to keep the eggs warm. This picture was taken at 8 am this morning the temperature was 0 degrees C, a little cool and mostly cloudy. I liked the light on the wings in this image as well as the angle of the wings.
