the nest varies, like a ship
the half live consists of arrangement, subordination and regulation

Here are two beautiful birds...but without names. I think that they need Estonian names. What you think if they will be:
female: Piret
male: Madis

I heard some kind of vehicle leave or pass, maybe that was why they were so loud and excited?

Bird in the rear of Gaby's photo is the female. :whistling:
The female is also the one who is argueing. :mrgreen: The male,if he want to win her favours,has to feed her now. The ospreys feed on fish,brought directly from the water.She will shout at him to bring the fish. :rolleyes:

UMP posted a great video of ospreys fishing;

I left the whole page link there as there are more videos and info about ospreys. :thumbs:

I have missed the returnings and leavings, but they have been quick -- about enough time for a food trade and no more.
