Waldport High School Osprey Nest

In spite of tearing down the football stadium, next to the osprey nest, the birds seem undisturbed.

I’m not sure if the 2 osprey in the nest are parent and chick or 2 chicks.  If you have a good telephoto lens, watch them from Ray’s Market on Hwy 34.  To get a little closer, watch from the High School parking lot across from Lint Slough.

A parent flies in with some food and then sits on the perch while they feed.

The parent didn’t stay long this time.

I watched as it flew next door and hovered over Lint Slough.

We wondered if some training by example goes on there within sight of the nest.
