Rogue River Osprey Rescued


Do you remember this young Osprey from my post on Sunday? Brady saw him on the side of the river while working a salmon trip on the Rogue. He thought the Osprey might have dived into the river for fish, as Ospreys do, and was too wet to fly off.  A few days later Brady saw the Osprey again in the same location and took a few close-up pictures, assuming he was hurt in some way.  Brady contacted a local wild life rescue organization and after they reviewed the photos determined he had a broken wing. Brady returned the next day, after gathering ideas and equipment needed for the rescue. The young bird is now getting help at Wildlife Images and will hopefully be returned to the wild soon.
