Jack 04/20/04 03:34 pm My grandson...age 2 1/2... and myself took a walk to the nestsite in what I will call the refuge proper. The little guy walked almost the entire 1 mile round trip. He wouldn't let me bring his stroller......said he's a "big boy" now. We observed both birds. On our way there an osprey flew right over us with a decent sized fish. The fish was silver in color but I could not ID it. We also observed an osprey fishing as we crossed the bridge shortly after you enter the refuge. He hovered a couple times as they will when they spot a target....but he never made the dive. We also spotted a large snapping turtle right near the river bank. I'm guessing he was 18 inches from nose to the end of his shell.
RonS 04/20/04 04:34 pm Hi Jack, Thanks for including us on your trips to the "Refuge". Between your descriptions and Mickey's photos, I'm getting to see the sights!!
Mickey 04/20/04 06:47 pm Some people go bird watching to see a specific species and dont see one for that visit. This nest in the Refuge is a gift from God. You`re almost guarenteed to see Osprey in this refuge in your 1st hour !! You`ll certainly hear them !
