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.
