I got a good look at the three chicks late morning today.Not much activity but all looks well. Sizes seem appropriate and some wing flexing going on.

Visited on a rainy Saturday. It was high tide. Marsh was under water. Both Osprey were present. Female in the nest and male on a nearby perch.

Today the female was very vocal when a black bird/crow was to close for comfort. The male returned from his flight to chase the black bird away and sat with the female before returning to his perch then she joined him there.

Found this nest a few days ago. Very active nest. Both male and female made short flights out during my hour visit. Time 6am-7am.
