Operation Osprey Rescue

Came Across this Female Osprey with a Broken Wing

Rescued this Female Osprey.  Currently in rehab.  Due to be released in 3 weeks.  

Came across this Osprey around 11am in a remote area.  It's nest was in high up in a tree with little ones in it.  The Male Osprey circled above as I checked this Osprey.  Its quite risky as they tend to be very territorial and dive and threats.  Their talons are quite large and could inflict some serious damage.  Went back with another rescuer at 830pm and the Osprey had not moved.  It's future was certain death.  We closed in with a canoe and kayak and were able to rescue the Osprey.  Note to self - next time take a flashlight to get back without issues.
