Balancing
The next morning I was left to my own devices while Ken and Judy had family matters to deal with.

So, at Ken's suggestion I took myself down the road a bit to where the Ospreys nest on a power pole. They were well fledged by this time, even though it was early spring but this youngster returned to the area while I was sitting there, I guess, hoping a parent would arrive with some food (didn't though).

He did a great wing display for me, not sure if this was to help him keep his balance or make himself noticeable LOL
