Both Osprey parents expend considerable effort protecting the nest from intruders, including other Ospreys and potential predators.
The female Osprey chased the crows away from the nest for sometime today. She had a number of vocalizations and wouldn’t return to the nest until the crows were well gone!

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.
