Osprey at Sweet Springs Nature Preserve


For those who have been following the attempts by Morro Coast Audubon Society (MCAS) to entice Osprey into nesting by the Morro Bay Estuary, two Osprey have been seen for the past week at Sweet Springs Nature Preserve. For at least 3 nights, one Osprey has been seen roosting near the nest platform that was installed by MCAS in January, with the generous help of donations from the community. This seems like a young bird (eye color and scalloping of the plumage on the back), though the 2nd bird seen appears to be a full adult.
