Quilt on Osprey Nest

Osprey with Quilt

Nest building continues even after incubation starts. Both male and female this year are bringing additional material to the nest as they trade off incubation duties.

Inspired by AmysCreativeSide blogger festival,  I took osprey photos Thursday this week at a small lake outside a smaller town in a rural part of central Wisconsin.   Nest building continues after a really late start to the spring here.     Our locality is well known for its artistic and creative residents — and quilting is in the blood of many– and no wonder, with the osprey to inspire us.

This is the “Wisconsin Sampler Quilt”, designed by Meredith Miller and made by MaryJo Gerhardt.  Merideth’s previous quilt was used as a fund raiser for the natural lands set aside on this tiny jewel of a lake.   This time her quilt is REALLY helping out !

All in fun.

Osprey Nest and Pole

This nesting platform is 60 feet above the ground. The osprey have had successful broods here for the last 4 years.
