I’m pleased to share with you that the family of Zorro and Esperanza are doing quite well. With three little ones in the nest, Zorro is busy throughout the day bringing fresh fish and new sticks for Esperanza and his family.
The Three Musketeers are getting along better and Esperanza is careful to share fish bits with each of the kids.
They are getting bigger by the day and from what I gather they should fledge from the nest around July 4th week.
In the meantime I’m enjoying gazing out and watching this beautiful Osprey family enjoy the Chesapeake Bay.
LOVE these two, so glad this year is a good one for their family… ❤
It’s been amazing for them and Zorro is quite the fisherman. Thank you my sweet friend.
The little ones are SO cute. After all the trials of the past year for this couple, it is great to see them thriving.
Isn’t that the truth Mike. BTW how is the osprey nest doing down in your neck of the woods? you’ve been finding some amazing things this year at Huntley.
Thanks, Emily. We have an osprey or two that hang around Huntley Meadows Park, but I don’t think that anyone has spotted a nest. The nearest ones that I know of are on the Potomac River and I haven’t visited one recently.
wow they grow up fast :O
They really do…I need to visit them today to see if they’re all there still. Thanks Andy.
This is better than TV! Where do I call for an Osprey nest install in my back yard? 😉
So glad they have your yard to nest in and they aren’t being bothered by that evil neighbor.
Do you have Osprey in your area? We’d have to look about and see if there is a place that does this in your area. This is a local non-profit that does it. I’m sure they may know. So..last night my neighbors across the water did a 1 hour plus fireworks show. The kids hunkered down and Esperanza just sat there watching the show. Front row seats baby!
There is supposed to be, however very very few. It’s a bit north for them, but lots of water for hunting. I’ll have to look into it 😆
Can’t wait to hear what you learn. Happy 4th!
Wonderful news! 👍
My dear Fatima..I’ve been thinking about you. I hope you’re having a lovely summer and off adventuring.
They must be so much fun to watch.
They really are, and it’s interesting how they tend to have a routine. This morning was nest rebuilding after all of the rain. Thank you my dear.
So good to hear and see this couple is doing fine! Three ‘kids ‘ will certainly keep Zorro busy 🙂
Yes they do, and Esperanza is such a nag to him. A very happy family indeed. Thank you Tiny.
Absolutely wonderful 😀 Thanks so much for sharing their happy story with us!
It’s been such a joy Sarah, how could I not share? We need more happiness in our lives right?
Oh we sure do Emily!!
