Osprey nest

Earlier Thursday afternoon, Les & I had briefly stopped at the Osprey platform and concluded that the birds may have left. However, when Jim & I checked it out again later in the day, we noticed some movement just above the platform. Much of the time the female would flatten herself so only the very top of her head was visible.
As we prepared to set up the tripod and camera, the male swooped in and out and was gone. We decided to wait . . . and wait . . . and wait. Jim was getting skeptical about the male's return; I was wondering how to bribe Jim to stay since he was driving.
