Summary Take a photographic journey through nesting season with a newly mated osprey pair. In this true raptor adventure, the ospreys prepare a nest and mate, but their eggs do not hatch. Through an unlikely twist of events, the unviable eggs are swapped by biologists with hatchlings from an ill-fated nest. Witness the heartwarming account as the adults become foster parents and care for the young, including a nest interloper. Watch as the helpless chicks grow into fledglings and experience first flight. Resources include the osprey's current plight, tips for helping injured ospreys, and a glossary of terms. Like the award-winning Inside a Bald Eagles Nest, this second collaboration by the authors is a timeless treasure to be enjoyed by all ages. With comprehensive information and 380 photographs in the ospreys natural habitat, it is perfect for raptor enthusiasts, webcam viewers, nature and wildlife lovers, conservationists, teachers, children, and photographers.
