After learning about nests, these toddlers experienced the feeling of nesting together.
Toddlers In Their Nest
Ospreys Have Taken Up Residence
The Osprey have been hard at work preparing a nest on site at the Audubon Center. They have taken their nest back from the Great Horned Owls who have nested there for three years.

Osprey typically lay eggs in April or May. The female incubates them for about a month, all the while fiercely protecting the nest with her mate.

Special thanks to Rick Hutcherson and his drone  "birds-eye view" photos.  Check them out on our Facebook page.

We will continue to monitor the nest for activity and update Facebook with progress.

What nests have you seen in your own backyard?Read more
