There are 3 different Osprey nests on my drive home.... and there are two more nests at work, with a third nest under construction just outside the compound where I work... plus we have a pair of geese that are trying to nest at the building entrance and keep trying to chase me :)

Don now I'm beyond envious.  But I did shoot a robin this week!

I did have a nest of C geese on my pond once and got attacked.  My kids were scared to death of them!  Not that funny.

Wonderful shots, Don! You are indeed a lucky man. At best, I get rare glimpses of Ospreys far overhead, well beyond the reach of my lens. To have three nests...truly lucky man. :)

Dang, all I get in osprey nests are geese!
Seriously, we've got two nests in the area that have geese in them.

LOVE IT!!!!

Is that some kind of food delivery system for raptors?

Great shots everyone. 

Don I am jealous of you too.  I have to travel 90 miles one way to get to an area that has the population you described.
