This osprey is just leaving the nest located on a floodlight in the parking lot of Ray Jay Stadium in Tampa,Florida,USA.I have followed and photographed this osprey couple for the last 3 years and uploaded many of those photos here on RB including the babies,but at the end of the football season the Tampa Buccaneers pulled down and destroyed the nest and re-painted all the floodlights in the parking lot.I was very concerned as to what would happen and have seen the Ospreys lurking around, but this week was really happy to see they are back on the floodlight and have started to rebuild the nest on the same floodlight.That is nature for you !!!
