Osprey Over Beaver Creek

Hung out on the water with the osprey family.  They have a nest in a pole holding high tension electric lines next to Beaver Creek above the marsh.  One of the adults made feeding flights every 20 minutes, landing on the nest and bringing food.  One time the other mate took off and another time the same bird took off.  So the mates vary the order of staying on the nest and making feeding flights.  The bird on the nest fed itself and the chicks from the food brought in.  There was lots of vocalization and excitement about food and flying.
