This male osprey and its mate were at a nesting platform just south of Grand Teton National Park on July 18, 2014. Both gave me one heck of an airshow as they flew around, taking off and landing from the nest multiple times. While the pair had clearly made their home, I did not witness any little ones so they may not have had a successful mating season.
How can you tell the difference between a male and female osprey? Females usually have a ‘necklace’ across their white breast while males have none. The main image here shows a female.
