This male Osprey was circling the nest of another pair of Osprey in Longmont, Colorado. I tend to think he had thoughts of moving in on the home and perhaps the female that was there as well. The other male however would have no part of it and soon chased this interloper off.
Osprey spend their winters along Mexico’s coast and in South America. Summers see them migrate to the northwestern United States and much of Canada. Here in Colorado we have seen a welcome increase in their summertime presence. This has been helped by the many manmade nesting sites that have been established for them along the Colorado Front Range and in the mountain areas.
If you want to see more of these cool birds, you can find some of my pics of them here. Also, below the main image is the complete gallery of images from this day.
