A hop, skip, and a jump away….

From the eagle’s nest I mean, is Anclote River Park.  I’ve taken pictures here before, which is why I knew that there is an osprey nest there, and since the rookery seems to be getting into full swing I thought maybe the ospreys were too.  And yes, they were.  One was guarding the nest when I got there, and the other one arrived shortly afterwards.  There was feeding activity going on, that was obvious, but the nest seems to be tipped away from the parking lot viewing area, and the babies never popped their heads up.  But I will have to keep an eye out.
