The young Osprey flew to the branch and has been moving about today, even landing back at the nest this afternoon. Momma brought a fish to the branch this morning and kept a great lookout on passing gulls.
Here is the young Osprey looking very spiffy in his early feathers. I shot this after lunch, in the hazy hot weather.
I watched the young one swing his head side to side. I observe this action among Osprey, I do not know what it means. It seems to be an action of satisfaction, like a dog wagging a tail.
So we named this one 'Sagan' after the young rider on the Tour de France who likes to improvise his celebratory finishes: young, strong and dancing!
