Osprey wildlife webcam viewers were treated to a pleasant surprise last week when Audrey brought her first stick back to the nest for the season. Every year, the osprey pair rebuilds their nest in preparation for egg laying and incubation, with several sticks marked with ribbons by the Crazy Osprey Family, the property owners where the nest is located.
This year, Audrey’s first stick was marked with a blue and yellow ribbon to show the Crazy Osprey Family’s support for the people of Ukraine. This is a powerful gesture and we’re proud to document this display on our wildlife webcams, in partnership with the Crazy Osprey Family and explore.org.
