encouragement!

We watched Dad pass over the nest several times enticing his young osprey with a fish he had just caught, then disappear before landing on this nearby tree. Mom would land in the nest, stay for a short time after having a serious conversation with the young Osprey...she then flew off and landed with her mate as the youngster looked on a little perturbed!

 

It appeared to us that this was a lesson to encourage the ready to fledge Osprey to make the leap.
