Chicks are signifigantly smaller than other fledgelings I watch. They both have started flying however and are doing well. Pictures to come. estimate there size to be 1/3 smaller than my average fledgelings.

Two chicks present. The smallest chicks of all my nests. Adorable! Still very dependent. Just starting the opening of their wings. Both adults present. Feeding time.

This Nest shows only one chick and it seems much smaller than all my other nest's chicks are at this point. Maybe slightly younger? It seem attentive and watches alongside the female most of the time. The female is not alarmed as much by my presence but the foot traffic has tripled here lately. The male is still bringing branches and fish regularly.

I do visit all my nest once a week just behind on post. These two seem to be doing well. She is always very alarmed by my walking by the street to get to a good veiwing point. They noth circled me and a third joined in. I'm not sure from where. May investigate the island more this weekend. The male is very doting and quick to answer her alarm. The are harassed often by low diving crows and another osprey.

Found by accident. Was standing under the nesting tree and they started circling me. Wish I was quicker with my camera. Nest is on top of a tall scrub pine. Occupied by both. Approx.2pm
