Zorro and Esperanza

I’m pleased to share with you that the family of Zorro and Esperanza are doing quite well. With three little ones in the nest, Zorro is busy throughout the day bringing fresh fish and new sticks for Esperanza and his family.

The Three Musketeers are getting along better and Esperanza is careful to share fish bits with each of the kids.

They are getting bigger by the day and from what I gather they should fledge from the nest around July 4th week.

In the meantime I’m enjoying gazing out and watching this beautiful Osprey family enjoy the Chesapeake Bay.

      • Thanks, Emily. We have an osprey or two that hang around Huntley Meadows Park, but I don’t think that anyone has spotted a nest. The nearest ones that I know of are on the Potomac River and I haven’t visited one recently.

  1. This is better than TV! Where do I call for an Osprey nest install in my back yard? πŸ˜‰
    So glad they have your yard to nest in and they aren’t being bothered by that evil neighbor.

    • Do you have Osprey in your area? We’d have to look about and see if there is a place that does this in your area. This is a local non-profit that does it. I’m sure they may know. So..last night my neighbors across the water did a 1 hour plus fireworks show. The kids hunkered down and Esperanza just sat there watching the show. Front row seats baby!
