Osprey Family Nova Scotia

We walked along the trail and we saw this nest on top of the barn. We noticed this adult osprey and we saw her bringing food to the nest with two young chicks. They are so hungry

We realized these Ospreys are related to eagles and hawks. I noticed they have a brown stripe runs across the head through the yellow eyes. In flight Ospreys hold their wings with a bend at the “elbow”.

Lands and Forestry told us the Ospreys return to Nova Scotia from their wintering grounds in South America and the Caribbean by mid-April.


  1. Baby birds are hilarious when squawking for food! I was walking along the Oroville Dam a few years ago and there was an osprey eating a fish on the walkway. I watched it for a LONG time!
