SKY WATCH FRIDAY

So this huge nest is sitting on top of a telephone pole in my neighborhood. You can't help wonder what gigantic bird reside here. I thought the plane in the second picture was a possiblity :)





Finally I returned, after many tries, and found this osprey sitting beside her nest. You'll have to enlarge it to appreciate her. They are endangered so their nest can't be disturbed till their young have left. This is a problem in the spring as they love to nest on boats that are dorment for the winter. About this time of year they head to South America for the winter. Don't you wonder why Florida isn't warm and far enough?

That is a very large nest for such a medium-sized bird! Are those heading straight on in, Osprey as well? I wonder if they room-share ...
