Osprey Nest in Yellowstone Canyon at the Falls

DSC_3117

This Osprey nest was up on a rocky outcrop in the magnificent Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone near Yellowstone Falls in Yellowstone National Park.  The Ospreys had a very secure nest didn’t they?  This area is a huge deep broad natural river canyon across from the big waterfall on the Yellowstone River.

The pair of Osprey seemed to be doting parents of two chicks.  I was quite a ways from this nest and used my long 500mm lens to take the pictures.  Sorry you are really unable to make out the babies in this nest but yes, they were there.  I took the picture while on a guided photo tour on June 15, 2014.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger version of that photo.  Enjoy!
