Welcome to the 2015 Osprey Cam at Cape Henlopen State Park!

Our Mating Pair

Osprey Pair on the nest
The pair should be on and off the nest until the middle of April, when the female begins to lay and incubate her eggs. The male will then be stopping at the nest off and on to deliver fish to the female for most of the spring.

Watch for Chicks!

Friday Funny!

My Uncle sent me this on email today. Yes, he is retired. No, I can't gaurantee that he didn't or

wouldn't do it:

>>  Yesterday I was at my local Kroger's buying a large bag of Purina Dog Chow for my loyal pet, Jake, the Wonder Dog, and was in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

>> What did she think... I had an elephant?

>> So because I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

>> I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is, to load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.)

>> Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food  had poisoned me.
 I  told her no, I stopped to pee on a fire hydrant and a car hit  me.

>> I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.

>> Kroger's won't let me shop there anymore.

>> Better  watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think  of  crazy things to say.
