2015 Osprey Nests

I spend a lot of time observing two osprey nests near Crystal Lake (Shasta County CA). Although I cannot see any chicks yet, the adults are definitely “tending” – probably eggs. Osprey have five distinctive calls that sound like high-pitched whistles: alarm, guard, excited, solicitation and screaming calls. After hours of watching and listening, I believe I can distinguish some of the different osprey calls.
