Ontario, Canada this year has an excellent population of Osprey. Many of the nest have produced 2-3 chicks which all are feeding and growing rapidly, all great signs of high fish populations and an ecosystem that is recovering after the high levels of DDT in the 80's.
This nest was photographed near Kingston, Ontario on a private island owned by friends of my wife. With coffee in hand their day begins watching the Osprey 80' off their deck, life is good!
