“Get Out and Stay Out!”
An osprey was chased away by a Red-winged Blackbird yesterday morning. The blackbird must have a nest in the area and doesn’t want the osprey getting too comfortable flying around the general area.
The blackbird might be somewhat confused because it’s unlikely that an osprey who prefers fresh caught fish will attack a nest. The hawk would be the more likely culprit in that scenario, but I suppose they all look around the same to a blackbird. In any case, it’s best to be safe when protecting a nest.
