I miss Ospreys. Since their main diet is fish, not too many in Southern Arizona. Whenever I went fly fishing (in the northwestern US and Canada) they were a constant companion. Often they would encircle a lake I was fishing -- just to show off their catch. But, that's another Blog. Here are their nests. As you can see from the first photo their nests can be quite large. The female is on the nest with the male on "lookout" at a branches end. In the second photo you can see two young chicks in addition to their mom.
