Fly Free, Osprey!
We worked quickly to get this osprey back to its release site and it was a thrilling morning all around. As is common with their kind, they insist on only eating what they catch (fresh fish, thank you very much), unlike other raptors who will accept what we offer them, so time was of the essence to get this bird back to the water. Carol brought the release box to the nest sight and you can see how strongly this bird flew away from us, and we had that moment of being so proud and nostalgic all at once. Fly free, osprey! Fly free!
