This female Osprey near Grand Lake, Colorado was not a happy camper. As she sat perched near the nest she was incessantly screaming – more than I had ever heard one do.
At first I thought it might be my presence but then I followed her gaze (or rather glare). Her mate was in a nearby tree dining on a fresh breakfast of trout and she clearly felt her and their offspring should have some.
The story did have a happy ending as after the male had his fill, he brought the leftovers to the nest for the other three to enjoy.
