Male Osprey checks on the female Osprey nesting in Anchor Bay
This pair has survived several attacks by Ravens and some very high winds but they are still thriving. The nest overlooking the Pacific Ocean is a little tattered but still intact. The female Osprey has been sitting on the nest for several weeks now. Occasionally she stands up and appears to move the eggs around. Yesterday I photographed through our spotting scope a visit to the nest by the male Osprey. The rocky island on the left is Fish Rocks, which is just off of Anchor Bay.
