These are my Hyannis ospreys. I refer to them as mine because, well, they hang out at my beach. You know, the one I have walked on every day since I was a kid. Okay, so it really isn't my beach in the true possessive sense but over the years I've gotten to know this beach pretty well.....and yes, I often think of it as mine, especially in the off season months when I often have it all to myself.
To be honest, I am actually part of a group monitoring osprey nests this year so I will be keeping very close tabs on this nest for scientific reasons as well as foster parental ones.
