The proud parents now have 2 youngsters, almost ready to leave their high home.

Earlier today, alert reader — and osprey lover — Jo Ann Davidson took a photo of the entire fine-looking family:

    Way cool – wildlife is so very soothing for the soul.

      I have seen nests in Florida on poles at the side of major roadways. All the birds seem to care about is a large enough platform and proximity to fishing grounds. They are also in people’s backyards.
