New Neighbors


There goes the new house. We have one in our neighborhood. Mrs. G and I have watched our new neighbors struggle to build their home. When I said “there goes their house,” I meant that literally. We have watched them build it piece by piece. Our new neighbors are a pair of Ospreys who have selected a dead pine tree directly across the street from our house.

The Geezer says our new two birds are intrepid builders. He’s watched them fend off another pair of Osprey and an outsized Bald Eagle that all decided that pine was where they wanted to live. The nest, mom, and dad are shown in the following picture. I mentioned the county noise ordinance, but they don’t pay any attention. They’re better than the morning alarm clock I understand how the “Screamin’ Eagles” got their name.

Osprey

These birds are my alarm clock EVERY morning

 

One thought on “New Neighbors

  1. My son hates birds because he used to be a night worker and there was no way to drown them out every morning. In California, even winter didn’t give him a break. Interesting how birds are fighting for the best property just like we are these days. A housing shortage. 🙂
