Celeste 03/20/12 05:55 am Neat story Anne! As I was watching the Utility man rearrange the nest to make more of a bowl, I thought of Dennis & Betty constantly rearranging..hopefully they will like where the "furniture" was placed!



Shelley 03/20/12 07:02 am Aw, that was great! Thanks for that
Trishrg 03/20/12 08:30 am EXCELLENT!!!!
Kathy 03/20/12 10:14 am A good ending story. Did they borrow our Hampton blue cloth/napkin? :-)
Melanie 03/20/12 10:26 am What a lovely way to start the day!

You know, watching that all I could think was "How did they know an osprey's favorite color is blue?!"

The only thing that gave me pause was that it looked like they lined the nest with a nice cushion of Spanish Moss. My recollection from living in FL as a child was Spanish Moss is usually full of chiggers.
Anne-UK1 03/20/12 01:45 pm I had to look up what chiggers are. Doesn't sound good :(

I was actually concerned about the nest - they said part of it had collapsed and that's why the chicks fell out. I hope it's sturdy enough to last the season.

I hadn't thought about the cloth being blue. A happy coincidence perhaps lol.
Nancy L 03/21/12 02:16 pm Oooo!! I had chiggers once - after a hike in the Pine Barrens of Long Island. Wasn't nice.
Peter 03/21/12 02:26 pm Hopefully this human intrusion into the natural world will not result in the introduction of a parasite into the nest.

Well-intentioned as the nest repair may have been, this coin definitely has two sides.

Not to mention the "survival of the fittest" aspect of this.
Anne-UK1 03/21/12 06:12 pm Yes, we're not very good at leaving nature to do its own thing. You do wonder what this planet would be like if 'man' hadn't been here to meddle. Very different, that's for sure.
Lyn 03/23/12 03:57 pm What a great story on my first day back here in a while! :-)
Mickey 03/25/12 04:22 pm I'm so glad I looked in here.Thank you for posting the video.
