Living for now on the east coast, I've had the opportunity to see local wildlife in all its variety. On first arriving here, I noticed giant nests sitting on platforms atop telephone-sized poles. These were located both near the water and on farm roads. Turned out, an artist friend had a nest in her front yard, overlooking the bay. Osprey. Each spring, they got a close up view of the arrival of the birds, nesting, and hatching of the fledglings. Some tense moments when the tiny birds stood on the edge of the platform, peeking over before taking their first leaps.
This little Osprey is made of needle felted Corriedale with a twig nest.
