This Osprey family is doing well in tony downtown Winter Park – living in their very own, rent free high-rise. Dad is an awesome fisherman – he brought back 3 during the short time I watched.
Mom seems experienced and devoted to the chick, shading it from the hot sun and feeding it small bites of Dad’s catch.
I first wrote about this same nest about a year ago. Please click below to read the older post.
I decided to revisit this week and I’m glad I did. It’s a wonderful place to observe this family from 40 – 50 feet away. Since the birds are used to traffic and people, you can watch them without stressing them at all. An ambulance even went by with its siren going and Mom just calmly watched it.
As a bonus, I met another photographer there. Turns out we have a lot in common: While we shot, we talked about birds, locations, cameras, lenses, and grandkids! A marvelous, mini photo excursion!
