Osprey Courtship Behavior
Yesterday I reported seeing our first Osprey of the season at Wallace Marine Park. Today, while I was volunteering at the Audubon Nature Reserve, Jeanette called to report seeing a pair of Osprey cleaning the grass out of a nest site on Murlark Ave. NW. Later I went by to check and took the following series of photos of their courtship behavior. They can't have been in the Salem area for long, but they seem pretty serious about their intentions, or at least HE is!
