Learning to fly with a fish

Trying to fly
This fledgling osprey has picked up the fish that its mother has dropped in the nest and trying to fly with it – all part of the learning process.

A Careful Landing

Osprey landing with claws closed
Normally this osprey would land with its claws spread out. However, with three very young chicks (eyases) in the nest it comes in with its claws closed. I took this picture at Lake Sonoma, Sonoma County, CA.

Padding the Nest

This osprey is bringing a pine branch to add to the nest. It is common to see these birds continue to add to the existing nest even after the eyats are born. I took this photo at Lake Sonoma, Sonoma County, CA.

An Osprey Brings Half a Fish

About 15 minutes later the original bird flew off with the fish. Its partner did not seem to want it. I photographed these birds at Lake Sonoma in Sonoma County, California.
