BIRDS ON A LAMPPOST

On our walk the other day, my guy pointed out what we think is an osprey nest. It's on one of those high ballfield posts. He took a couple of pix today.

These are the babies. Looks like they're about ready to fly!




And this is the mother with a baby beside her that you can barely see. The light pole itself is very tall, one of those that towers over the ball field.



Yesterday, we saw a large bird on a nearby pole. I theorize he was the father and was acting as sentry for his little family. Or maybe he was looking for tasty squirrels/mice/lizards to feed his growing kids.

Then again, maybe his wife had kicked him out of the nest!

    1. I think they're almost ready to fly. Right now, they're still getting fed by Mama though!

    1. Impressive that they'd pick a lamppost in the middle of the ball field for their aerie!
