These were taken from the end of Reeves Road near the Coast Guard station at Milford Haven.
I was so busy admiring the scenery
that I almost overlooked some activity at a nearby boat house.
How these creatures construct something like this on such a sharp angle is well beyond my comprehension. That the nest is strong enough to hold the parents as well as babies is even more incredible.
But more than anything? That pile of sticks disguised as a nest reminds me that I still have tons of yard work to do. A similar pile of yard debris has been patiently waiting for me to burn it for about three weeks now.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Osprey,
In spite of the fact that I may have just likened your nest to a pile of yard debris, please know that I am genuinely impressed with your construction skills. I apologize for any confusion I may have inadvertently caused. It's just that your nest kinda sorta does resemble my stick pile. I doubt you'd want your children growing up in my yard, though. Too many cats on the ground there. Plus, you don't even build nests on the ground. So there, your nest and my pile of debris are in fact vastly different and should never be confused. Again. Ever. But of course you already knew that.
I'll stop now.
p.s. The month of May is here already?
