Nest building

Recommended Posts

I took these pictures this morning at Honeymoon Island State Park, Florida on the park's Osprey Trail.  I scored a nesting triple play...  three large predators nesting within roughly 1 mile. 

  • First pic is a pair of Osprey (one is hunched over on the nest).
  • Second pic is a female Great Horned Owl.  A ranger told me she has been nesting for a couple of weeks but nobody has spotted chicks yet.  I saw the male in a nearby tree.
  • Third pic is a Bald Eagle adult and its chick.  The adult has just landed carrying a tasty fish.  There are at least 2 chicks in the nest.
