Nesting Diaries

Youngling flew for the first time 3/30/18. For a two day period prior, Mrs. O'Sprey was leaving the nest frequently and chirping toward the nest & Youngling O'Sprey would pop it's head up & look. I thought Mrs. O'Sprey was trying to teach Younglings to fly, but I was mistaken. She was trying to teach Youngling to make some noise. When he started chirping on the second day of this behavior, she chirped back and they created beautiful sounds for a brief period of time, then she flew to the nest with a fish in her grasp. The two chirped playfully & resembled a nurturing mother adorning her precious proud young with affection. She shares the meal and that little bird got busy devouring the catch and did not make another sound ♡ I figured flying would be next, and sure enough, a day later we were privileged enough to observe Younglings first flight.
