Our docks are under construction and barges have been all around us all winter and spring. But this morning we noticed something a little different out on the top of the crane.
Mama and Papa osprey happily doing what birds to in the spring, building a nest.
Zach and I idled the morning away sitting in the sawdust of the the newly constructed docks, watching the papa osprey fly back and forth, back and forth bringing in sticks for his nest while mama osprey squawked away.
Zach held up some sticks of his own hoping -- as only the heart of a 4-year old could -- that the papa osprey would swoop down and grab a stick right from his little hands.
Now here's the cliffhanger. Apparently, it's against the law to disturb or remove an osprey nest. So one might wonder what exactly the construction company plans to do about this particular predicament. We were speculating that somehow in the middle of the night that osprey nest might disappear mysteriously. I hope however they handle it, they do it with care.
