It’s 5:30 in the morning and I’m sitting here watching live webcams of eagles nesting and thought I’d look into the status of the nesting platforms in Calgary. I came upon this entry by Birds Calgary and these wonderful photographs by Joe Harley. I had seen this redundant diving of the Osprey trying to evict a goose. Good to see it captured so beautifully!
Ospreys have returned and have started to nest on platforms across the city. When this Osprey arrived at the platform at MacLeod Trail and Highway 22x on April 24, he first had to evict a pair of Canada Geese who had thoughts of nesting there too. Photos by Joe Harley.
Joe also got some great shots of an Osprey with a fish south of Carburn Park. This is one of the pair that is nesting at the Lafarge platform along MacLeod Trail just south of Southland Park.
