Tank you for taking the time to give me your experience on the subject. I will go that way. First step is to find their favorite fishing spot and where they go to eat it. Wish me good luck..

Hi Yves, thank you again. With the Osprey I have gotten use to their body language and now know when they are about to fly back to the nest. Watch for them to become restless and chirp a lot more sure enough they will take off shortly. If they are off hunting sometimes they return when I am there and sometimes I wind up leaving before they come back. I will have my camera prefocused on the area around the nest, set to burst mode and a speed of 1600. Sometimes a use a tripod and sometimes I handhold the camera. Once I have captured a few frames I do not stick around too long I do not want to overstay my welcome.
