Ospreys nest near water in a tall tree or on a tower, where they are exposed to all the elements, including direct sunlight which can sometimes produce scorching temperatures. At other times, they're pounded by rain, as they protect their young. When the storm's over, it's back to feeding those hungry young birds. How do wild creatures withstand such rigors in order to protect and nurture their offspring? While we strive to understand, Ospreys have our profound appreciation.
