‘Empty Nest Syndrome?’ – Not with This Osprey
About two weeks ago, a real-life family feud was captured by photographer Mike Daniels at the Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge near Stevensville.
The young osprey in the refuge platform has been cared for, protected and fed by mom and dad, reaching the size and age where it is time for the bird to go off and fend for itself.
However, the rebellion is caught in a series of photos where the suggestion to "get out of the house" is apparent. The "heck no, I won't go!" reply is also obvious.
...and you thought you had problems with your teenager.
