Over the past number of years there has been a big increase in the Osprey population.  A lot of it has to do with the man made nest building.  Erecting tall poles with a platform on top that allows the Osprey to build a nest on.  They are magnificent birds and so much fun watching ass they fish.  Often I can watch them from my studio flying up and down the river.  pausing now and then with wings flapping to hold their position in the air then if a fish is spotted-folding those wings and going into a dive where they nab their prey and fight their way back out of the stream or lake.  Streamline the fish in their talons and fly off to the nest to feed young or sit in a tall tree to enjoy their dinner.
