Really cool, that's some impressive nest. And the fishnet decorations are a nice touch.
hey, guy - well, that's why they call them Fish hawks!
Seems ospreys must have some distant relationship to Bower Birds (OK, very distant!) But seems when I've seen osprey nests on webcams, they're always full of stuff . Besides, those nets must sure help catch the chicks if they venture too far before they can fly! But thanks - this was such an amazing thing to watch from so close by!
I guess you could say they are fish net stocking.
Oh this is superb Kamaly I didn't realize they have a fondness for green bits & bots. Is that someone's house in the background?.
Talking of Bower Birds I have a photo of a one with a collection of "blue" things around it, but not in my gallery. Cheers M
Thanks, marbiz ! I don't think they limit themselves to green - seems they pick up a bit of lots of different things for the nests. Yes, that's a house. Very surprisingly, this is a post on a private dock in a rather densely settled area. It's only a block from downtown! So it was just such a giant surprise to find the nest there. Please ! Scan and post your bower bird shots! I think they're such interesting birds!
and guy - ha-ha to your old pun. I guess they were how momma bird caught herself a hubby!
Hi kamaly I have added the Satin Bower Bird as per your request. You can see his blue toys. Cheers M
Thanks, marbiz !
