Excited to report that this image of birds congregating in an impoundment at Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge has been selected for inclusion in interpretive panels being placed along the Greens Bayou Greenway trail in Houston, Texas. The sign copy includes information about Pelican Island as the first National Wildlife Refuge. From the OspreyWatch project.
An Osprey can dream big about the size of the nest he is going to build. Even collect big material for it. Unfortunately, whether this oversize dwelling will hold together is another story. Jumping to the end, it did not hold together. A more modest nest made of more modest sized material, though, turned into a big success at Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge.
