Osprey Nest by byronbackyard

Currently unavailable for purchase

Because of the lack of tall trees for Belongil Estuary Osprey to nest in, they use a man-made nesting platform, which they return to each breeding season. They mend the nest before breeding, primarily the female carries big sticks in her talons. The males job during incubation and the growing of the chick is to catch a lot of fish to feed his hungry family.

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.
