Oswald, an American Osprey

by , ,

Oswald, a young osprey, files across the Gulf of Mexico from Belize to the southwest coast of Florida looking for his birthplace on Sanibel Island. There, he discovers romance and home-building. Alas, the nest he and his mate, Becky, build on a power pole explodes causing a power outage on the island. Oswald rises above disaster to start again, raise chicks, and provide for the family with his fishing skills. All the fishing birds -- herons and pelicans -- make way for Oswald as he fiercely defends his waters. Oswald and Becky face tragedy as a great horned owl invades their nest, but they triumph at last when two of the fledgling offspring can earn their own living, leave the nest, and fly independently above the waters of the bay and Gulf.
