Osprey, First Flight, Chama, New Mexico

Osprey, first flight, along the highway power line nesting platform, Chama, New Mexico. A quick drive around the block today. It was very peaceful and delightful, watching these chicks and mom on the nest. Dad is gone, maybe fishing. We spent about an hour observing their behavior. Thanks for looking in. G

About 30 minutes later, mom has left and is calling from a nearby tree. Sister is saying, “wow bro, look at you, that’s awesome.”

  2. Wow! These are wonderful. Have a question, is it possible with your permission to display these on our Weminuche Audubon FB site and indicate they are yours? We love osprey! I’m on the board and we have an area so others can enjoy our photos on area birds which includes NM.

    1. I’ve photographed the osprey in this location since 2003. I’m familiar with them and their behavior. One of my most favorite birds of prey. Thank you Alison. G
