Bringing a Small Fish Home

Osprey flying with fish to nest
The osprey parent is bringing a fish for its fledgling to practice carrying. The fish is small complete with its head. My last posting had the fledgling flying above the nest with the fish in its talons.

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.

Bringing a Fish

These osprey eyases are growing in size and hunger. One of the eyases seems to be expressing need when seeing its father landing with a fish in its talons.

A Meal

Great egret eating a fish
This great egret had just caught this fish. The bird’s beak is about 6″ or 15 cm long. That’s a pretty big meal. It had no problem getting it down its long throat. I took this at Inverness on Tomales Bay.

This is the same picture of the osprey that I published yesterday but tightly cropped. I’ve been learning about wildlife cropping from Matt Kloskowski’s Wildlife Editing Secrets course. He’s recommending that we consider the environment and the action of the wildlife when cropping. The crop would be based on what the photographer thought was most important.

Osprey Landing with a Fish

Osprey landing
This osprey had been in its nest, tearing up this fish and feeding its young. It had flown off and was landing on this pole. I took this photo at Lake Sonoma, Sonoma County, CA.

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.

An Osprey and a Fish

This osprey was near its nest. Earlier, I observed it eating this fish on the same pole it was sitting on now. I photographed this at the bridge across Lake Sonoma, Sonoma County, California.
