Early June all 3 chick were being raised mostly on shad with an occasional Blackfish/Tautog.When July arrive Black sea bass along with Scup/Porgies and Menhaden and one small bluefish was seen brought to the nest by the male .As July rolled on the mother of the chicks started to periodically leave the nest mostly to defend her air space.One day was privileged to see her drop a Great Blue Heron from the sky and was relentless in her attacks when he landed too close to the nest. She was never see out fishing and only left the nest to escort other Osprey ,Egrets and cormorants that came too near on August 25th 1 fledgling could be seen sitting on nest
