I captured Mom flying in with grass this time

After she landed she tried separating it and spreading it out on the nest floor

As I was typing this she flew off again. Some of the grass stuck in her talons and -- the MBird flew in as she left to check for any goodies.

I was setting up the images and checking the times. Have an inbound Osprey at 3:05pm

Mom has been skywatching all day. I at one time wondered if she had a premonition that her mate would arrive today.

I was watching the baseball game and not paying a lot of attention to the computer. The stream has frozen several times today. Anyway, I checked it and discovered the two O's. Have not had a front view of the newcomer so can't compare the identity, but Mom is completely at ease with his (I presume it's a male) presence. Mom went into defensive postures as soon as he landed against some invisible intruder over the river while he looked at where she was watching. And then my screen froze!!!

Here is The Arrival and Mom

This is fantastic news! Sure looks like the comparison works. Looks like our Dad. She must have known he was almost home.
How exciting, everyone........huge grin from this area of the country.
