Bringing Home the, er, Bacon!
Every year, as we wait for evening fireworks on the Fourth of July, we have the privilege of watching a pair of nesting Osprey. This year was special. She didn't bring home the "bacon," but something else entirely! Over the space of a couple of hours, I watched this bird drop at least five fish into her nest.
Her chicks within the nest put out quite a racket! One could hear them over the noise of hundreds of people. I felt so privileged to watch this bird in action.
This was the last catch of the day before the Osprey settled in for an exciting evening of fireworks.
I want to add here that I have a new blog, The Abandoned, dedicated to the photos Sissy and I take on our walks through the abandoned mega church complex near where we grew up. I hope you enjoy visiting!
