Sky Watch Friday *7-10-09* Osprey Nest With an Ocean View

This osprey nest is inhabited year after year near the shore on Long Island.
Photo taken when we visited Gerry (Chris's father) & Ann two weekends ago.
Just over the tall grass is the ocean.

The photo below is their view.
Another ocean view from our trip to Long Island.
You will not find our boat among these.
The boat below is ours...and we love it
In photo it's on shore of a remote island ~ Indian Lake ~ Adirondacks

My son, Jason and my daughter's fiance are sending me sky watch photos from their cell phones! It's spreading throughout the family :) So here's Chris's (my husband) Jason & Juan's new blog for Sky Watching CumuloNimbucile. Have fun! My boys are funny :)

The Osprey's nest is so large but their view is even larger...

This is not what I think of when I think of New York. I guess if wildlife is happy there, it can't be too bad.

Looks like a lovely day to take the boat out for a spin :)

Will you please help me identify the building on my skywatch entry today? Thanks.

Small boats are more fun; I've had both.

Very nice photos Maria. I love the ocean. It's always been a dream of mine to live on the ocean. I think your boat is just fine for fishing and having fun!

Barb said...

I love the serene setting of your little boat. The osprey do have a pretty fab view, though.

Regina said...

Great Skywatch photos. I wish I had an osprey nest so close at hand!

Maria said...

Nice photos! The ospreys have a great view over the ocean! And your little boat looks so inviting - what a nice landing place!
Have a nice weekend!

I love where the osprey nest is situation. Definitely great views. Love your boat too. Makes me wish I'm boating now. :)

Happy skywatching!

Maria, thanks for your comment on my blog! Now I understand what happened with your comments. The fist comment was made under your yahoo-identity, although you did not mean to use it!
Anyway, I'm glad that you enjoy your visits in Vienna :)))
Have a great week!

I loved the Osprey's high-rise with a view and your servicable water craft, great for getting in up close and personal.

Those are very cool shots..

Love the one of the osprey's nest.... they have a million dollar view..

I can almost guarantee, that you have far more fum in your little boat, than those big boat owners have in theirs.. :-)
