Raptor Wednesday

A family of Osprey at Marine Park about three weeks ago. Parents on the posts. One youngster trying out those great big wing things, which can stretch to nearly six feet. The middle one squirting a squiggle of poop into the marsh.

A tree grows in Brooklyn, too, or at least a bush grows on an Osprey nest. I’m guessing a pretty live one was bought to the nest, or else something sprouted in the wood/poop/shell/feather/fish compost of the nest.

    A nice idea, but it didn’t come through.
