Thread subject: Osprey vs Great Blue Heron
Name Date Message
Melanie 08/12/13 03:17 pm For those not on Facebook, Lisa posted a link this morning about an osprey knocking a great blue heron, tailfeathers over teakettle.

Apparently ospreys consider GBH's a real threat if they get too close to their nests. I have seen this happen several times on my anding trips but always attributed it to frustration on the part of ospreys because we were being such a nuisance. It was as if they had to take their frustration out on someone and the heron was handier and a better target than the boat.

I suppose I'm not surprised if it actually landed on the nest with chicks,
Nancy L 08/13/13 10:38 am Interesting wildlife, huh?
