The end of Osprey season brought a little drama! We visited the nest and only one bird - the female juvenile - was present. She's the one that we saw attacked by crows as she was learning to fly.
Low and behold, three dastardly crows appeared. One took up a position on the pole to the west.
The other two took landed on a wire just southeast of our young lady.
They slung raucous threats toward the watchful girl. Then, remembering her mother's direct way of dealing with them, got a little more watchful.
In the end, they decided that discretion is the better form of valor and departed, leaving the young osprey resting unconcernedly.
