This has been a busy pair of Osprey. I watched them for an hour and they mated twice in that time.
I myself was in the hospital recently and seem to have more wrong with me than I already have faced, so getting to sit out and watch the osprey seemed good for my health. It is why I have been posting infrequently. Seeing new life begin anew just as spring gets in full swing is a joyful experience. I have strict restrictions on what I can do at this time, and gardening is out for a bit. I have cleaned up over half the garden and lots of flowers are blooming now. Tulips and Muscari look especially good right now, but lots has started to leaf out or opened to bloom.
And birds are being frisky.
The image above and below is the male coming in to the receptive female.

Below, he has gone out to find twigs to add to the nest. A gift for his misses.
