Description

I have watched and photographed an Osprey Nest at Standish Hickey State Recreation Area for the past two years. Last year the nest successfully fledged two Osprey. This year the Osprey spent a lot of time fixing up the nest but never incubated eggs, that I could tell, on my visits. California is in a horrible drought and our river is extremely low and fish are scarce. Out of the 5 Osprey Nests I observed this year along the Eel River, I did not see any successful hatchings. I did see Osprey with Lamprey as prey about a dozen times, which is something I never witnessed before.
