Red Eye, osprey chick, fledged 7/15!

Bird osprey chick fledged

Here’s Red Eye, back at her nest, the morning after she fledged. Her parents will continue to feed her while she learns how to fish. Check out her wing and breast spots. There is a doe on the far shore, probably about 1/4 mile away.

Pictures taken with an I-phone peeking thru a telescope may not be the best quality but at least you can see what’s happening.

The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.

  1. Very nice to be following this chick. That is, I think you are doing that. Weren’t there two a while back? Or am I confused. Just got back from a trip and can’t remember everything right.
