Cute pic! Unexpected find in osprey nest




Strong winds on Monday launched an osprey chick out of its nest in East Lake. When volunteers from the Clearwater Audubon Society put the bird back up in the nest to join its two siblings (it’s the one standing up), they discovered someone’s morning paper in the nest as well. So, if you didn’t get your newspaper recently, an osprey might have snagged it. Finding miscellaneous items in an osprey nest is not uncommon. “Mostly I see trash,” says Barbara Walker of the Clearwater Audubon Society. “Plastic bags in particular.” What’s the funniest thing she has seen? A pink size 7/8 women’s flip-flop.
