Osprey and Chick

Description

Out on the Snake River, south of Boise, Idaho I visited the Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation area near the Swan Falls Dam. There I spotted this Osprey and her chick. If you look close you will see monofilament fishing line at the edge of the nest. The little Osprey was caught in some of it and could not seem to get free when it tried to spread his wings to fly.
