Naturally, Westport

On his short walk from home to the Green’s Farms railroad station today, Nico Eisenberger heard and saw lots of osprey action.

That’s normal along the estuary. He sometimes feels like he’s “living inside an osprey soundtrack.” Looking up though, he spotted a new nest.

In his nearly 5 years in Westport, he says, it’s never been there.

Nico is not sure if this is a new nesting pair of ospreys, or a new nest for an existing pair. Either way, he says, it’s very exciting.

Meanwhile, Mary Sikorski spotted this gorgeous heron on the Westport Library Riverwalk:

The weather has not been great lately.

But mist and rain can never mask the beauty of Westport nature.

    Nico Eisenberger, I’m a steward for Osprey Nation and would like to see if the nest near Greens Farms rr is on the CT Audubon map. Is there a way you could get the coordinates via google maps and post it back to me so I could check? Thanks!

  2. The heron is a yellow crowned night heron!

    Both “spotting’s” are fantastic!
