44th District's Osprey Impress!
William Young and Ashley Bradford has done an amazing job documenting an Osprey family near Bellehaven Marina (just north of the 44th District, but frequented by many 44th District residents!).
You can find Osprey nests all over the 44th District along the Potomac River including Little Hunting Creek and Dogue Creek. I've also seen Osprey nests on the softball field light poles at Walt Whitman Intermediate School and Mount Vernon High School.
It's only ironic that these nests include plastic bags (thank you AutoZone for helping our Osprey make their nests). What would these birds do without plastic bags? They attempted to reproduce with plastic bags attached.
Excellent videos and resources about a striking predator in our area.
