Osprey returning to the nest with a branch

An adult osprey returns to its nest where its mate and two offspring are sitting with a branch grasped in its talons to use in expanding the nest. As the juvenile birds grow older and begin to realize the reality of the world outside the nest, the parents raise the walls of the nest higher with more branches to keep the young from accidentally falling out of the nest and into the marshy landscape below. Photographed on a hazy, hot and humid summer day in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA
