Osprey nesting season

It's osprey nesting season at Honeymoon Island. The nests on the trail (appropriately titled Osprey trail) are full of osprey couples. Lots of activity going on with them flying around with sticks and fish in their mouths. I'm not sure if there are many babies yet but there must be lots of eggs. Almost every nest had at least one osprey camped out on it. There must be at least 20 nests on the trail with some sitting right on the path.

You should check out the Dunedin osprey cam. There are 2 babies on the nest and they are moving around a lot now. It's really cute to watch.
