Osprey tree is down

Posted by
LauraS (Chico, United States) on 14 June 2009 in Landscape & Rural.

The tree that guarded Osprey Beach gave life to many birds we came to watch and love. They would fish right out in front of us, in this cove at Lake Almanor. This last winter the tree went down, the giant nest built for the osprey by the forest service is broken. The two by fours you see there were the base of the nest, atop the once tall tree. Sad to think they have to relocate now. I hope not too far away.

Visual learner that I am, I enjoy taking photos, seeing others photos, and sharing them with all of you.
How I view the world may influence others to see more clearly that the world I live in is truly a beautiful and spectacular place. I hope I can share my sense of wonder with others. I see the world in beauty, awe, reverence and wonder.

Truly, I am an amateur who loves to look at my world, marvel at its beauty, diversity, and I capture a slice for myself to remember and share. Surely I get inspired by the work I see from other photographers and it moves me to try new things.

I love this shot and that there's a story there, sad for the Osprey yes, but not all sad, the fallen tree is food and shelter for many species, let us know if your Forest Service relocates close by.
