Osprey Steals Wig

Published: Feb 04, 2013 12:51 PM EST

We moved into our house on San Carlos Island in July and we have had a full-size mannequin (Tina) sitting on our deck. Tina has been outfitted with a bikini, wig, cap and sunglasses (photo attached). This last Saturday, an osprey swooped down, knocked the cap and sunglasses onto the deck and flew away with Tina's wig, leaving Tina "bald" (photo attached). The osprey carried the wig to its nest about 300 yards from our house (we can see it from our deck). We went by boat to the nest and took the attached photo of the osprey in the nest and Tina's wig draped over the edge of the nest. We're still laughing! Tina has had many stories but this is the best!
