FEATHERING THE NEST
Last Friday, I went to Ft. Pickens with two good friends to do a little birding. We were in search of the green towhee which has been spotted on the path leading to the campground. It was a beautiful day, and while we did not see the adult green towhee, we're pretty sure that we saw a juvenile green towhee. Unfortunately, we didn't get a picture. But all was not lost, we did see some amazing sights. My favorite being the photos I took of an osprey couple building their nests. My vantage point was not great, the lighting was all wrong and I was so caught up in watching these beautiful birds, I failed to use my tripod. But, I'll share the best of the lot with you. I plan to return at a different time of day and see how their nest is shaping up.
Gee, that's a long way down.
Off I go. Keep an eye on things till I get back.
Hey look what I found!
I see the perfect spot for this.
I need a breather. -- Okay, here I go again.
Well, they can't all be big.
Think I'll do a little rearranging.
Hey you with the camera, how's it look so far?
