The male osprey has his evening meal on the boathouse branch. The wind was very strong today and you can see it is still blowing. This morning he had a small rockfish and the crows were licking their chops. The crows love fish and wait for the osprey to leave or drop bits. After eating ,the male will take the fish to the nest and the female will eat. I watched the crows go to the nest (after both birds were away) to grab bits of fish. They didn't have long, as the female made a quick return. 'Eating crow' would have a different meaning in this situation.
