Osprey~SkyWatch Friday ~ 082611


The day we drove out to Black Canyon Lake, we arrived to hear the screeching of a young osprey.  The nest was in the top of a tree overlooking the lake.  The young osprey was extremely loud ( apparently wishing to have a meal...) A heron flew over the nest and one of the parents took off after it and chased it away from the nest.  SkyWatch Friday for August 26, 2011.

I love spotting osprey nests, - many times they have been fortified with a platform at the top of telephone polls by kindly pole climbers!
