The ones they came back for -- The lodge at Osprey Island -- Where the osprey makes its nest -- The raptor is a bird of prey -- To what direction will your chicks take wing? -- How black the night that blinds our human hearts -- As fodder blazes stored above the byre -- In the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge -- The mechanics of flight -- An osprey builds its nest of sticks and all the rubbish it can collect -- How the osprey tends its nestlings -- The blessings of hypothermia -- On the interaction of species -- The nature of the structure of a lie -- The broodiness of hens: a brief lesson in avian reproduction -- If the price were treachery -- A long time helpless in the nest -- As they flee you'd think they float on wings -- WWCD? -- The shore recedes, and I too on the shore -- Grief-spurred, swift-swooping -- That flesh of his own flesh -- Night is the surest nurse of troubles souls -- An eyrie of osprey
