Update on nesting Osprey at Pueblo Res

Yesterday I stopped at the Pueblo Reservoir to check on the Osprey that I found building a nest (posted on 3-26-07) as well as the nesting Great Horned Owl (next post). I found that this Osprey was still working on building its nest but had added quite a bit of material. Though I was more than a thousand feet away, the bird let out some alarm calls (interesting since some people claim that Osprey can nest with human activity nearby). At least this bird did not welcome human disturbance, even distant disturbance.

This photo shows the nest with the Osprey perched on another pole a little further away. Double-click on the pic to enlarge it.
