One chick is perched on the far end of the roof from the nest.

There is a chick head popping up, and I saw a chick wing stretch.

They ospreys were kept from incubating by human interference for over an hour.

The ospreys who built this nest are likely to be the couple successful at nest #7780 on a burnt old boat last year. They were thwarted in an attempt at building a nest on a new boat this year. Then they built nest #8116 from branches of my beloved old willow oaks :)
