Osprey Returns to Wolfe's Neck
One of the four osprey that nest each summer at Wolfe's Neck State Park in Freeport has returned.
The fish hawk, a male, landed on Googins Island Tuesday night, Park Manager Andy Hutchinson announced in a Maine Department of Conservation press release.
Two pairs of osprey have nested in the park for some years. The birds nest on Googins Island, just a stone's throw from the mainland and are a favorite attraction at the Freeport park.
