Well, I wish I could tell you that Zorro and Esperanza adopted the newly installed Osprey platform today. We had left some sticks in the middle of the yard for building. Zorro quickly seized the opportunity and took each and every stick. Only to…take it to the original nest site on the neighbor’s boat lift.
Late this afternoon, Esperanza sat on the boat lift screaming away for at least an hour. She just wouldn’t stop. And then my eye caught Zorro high up in the tree after a successful fishing trip. No wonder she was fussing so much.
Who knows what will happen next in the saga of Zorro and Esperanza. Will the neighbors again remove all the sticks? Or will they give in to the Osprey.
If they do clean up the boat lift, then maybe – just maybe Zorro and Esperanza will move to their new platform that I had installed for them on my property.
For those wondering if the neighbors are to be held accountable for destroying the large nest last week. Turned out that the law was indeed on their side. As long as it wasn’t an “active” nest, meaning no eggs or babies, and the nest is on a dock like this, they have the right to remove it.
Tomorrow we’ll be back to Owl week ! See you then. Bella
