Re: Dunrovin Ranch MT Osprey cam . 2018

Harriet takes control of the fish and the feeding.. she eats first july 14 harriet 656.JPG july 14 harriet 656a.JPG july 14 harriet 656b.JPG My own thoughts on this : I think this is a teaching lesson for the chicks on how to take and posses the fish. They need to figure out how to be an Osprey.

Re: Dunrovin Ranch MT Osprey cam . 2018

The tail is always the hardest part to get down whole, Congo takes some time to tear some pieces of the fish off it it before it's finally swallowed.
