Osprey Nest Update
Recently I wrote about an osprey nest near our house being documented by a camera. There has been some sad news for the osprey family of Maurice River. July 11, 2011 the osprey-cam caught a great horned owl taking two of the three chicks. Although a natural part of life and educational it still made me a little sad. You can see the video of the owl attack HERE or the live feed of the osprey nest HERE. Ms. Q and I watched the owl video together and it provided an opportunity to talk. She thought it was a little sad and she felt bad for the parents but she understood that even owls have to eat (even if they eat cute little babies).
