The characteristic brick-red tail gives the species its name.
But the SU trio certainly seemed to be "cooperating" during 2016.
The male osprey Z3, is proving to be a very good partner to the (unbanded) female osprey--helping to incubate the eggs...this osprey family continues to grow!
What a way to wrap up the month of April: the second osprey egg was laid at the Arb's osprey nest sometime in the wee hours of Sunday, April 30.
Last year this same trio successfully raised three chicks to fledge.
The osprey is a large raptor, often known as the “fish hawk.” Both male and female osprey work together to create the nest.
