Osprey Sitings

Osprey are endangered in Indiana and two years ago chicks were reintroduced but not in this area. So it was with great excitement last night that Steve and I observed an osprey take off from the river bank, circle over the riverboat and head downriver . We watched it land and as we went downstream, it took off again. Tonight Steve was on the river and sited the osprey again. Both sitings were at dusk on the St. Joseph River north of Leo.

That's cool. Here in Ohio-just north of us in Delaware they have nesting platforms for them. At each place they have 3-one used by ospreys and 2 used by geese. I guess they get along because ospreys only eat fish.
