Thread subject: EARTH FLIGHT A NATURE SPECIAL -Europe
Name Date Message
Celeste 09/18/13 09:00 pm I am watching Earthflight Europe on PBS but eventually they will put the episode online. So far there are a couple of nests that we watch online live are being shown on this episode of Nature. The Stork nest, the osprey in Finland. What was interesting about the osprey who spend their time in Finland was the brown bears who would stand and watch them fish! Fish are plentiful, and the bears and their cubs were a captive audience watching them dive, catching a fish and flying away. Spectacular footage of the osprey diving and fishing and then flying to their favorite perch. The bears in that area know where the osprey like to eat as osprey tend to return to the same perch each time they eat a fish. The bears including the cubs, start to climb the tree. The osprey usually gets agitated, drops his half eaten fish and the cubs and their mother enjoy the leftovers! Fortunately, it was stated that the area is abundant with fish for the osprey to try again!

Here's a link...of the preview, but again, the full episode will soon be online.
