Leap of Fate
Any day now, the first young osprey will take the leap.
The ospreys hatched out another three eggs this spring and we have reached that time of the summer, always around our wedding anniversary, when we wait for the babies to become fledglings -- to take that brave and amazing leap off the side of the nest, and become what they are born to be: flyers and fishers.
All three babies are flapping their wings but we have yet to see the hopping from side to side in the nest that implies one is ready to go, ready to hop right into that beautiful blue sky.
