I've been waiting impatiently for my favorite pair to return. A few other osprey have been here for over a week now and I was beginning to get worried! Luckily this year, they are coming back to a nest that is still intact (and one along the parkway that the eagles haven't been hanging out at over the past few months)
9&10 Mar: Female perched above the nest
Going for a ride down the Parkway isn't the same with JR and most of the other ospreys not there any longer.
Juvenile in the nest, settling down for the evening
Nest empty at first, then (about an hour later) the juvenile is perched on a branch a few feet away.
I hope no one minds, but I deleted the photo showing the two nestlings since one didn't make it.
I'm guessing Jr has probably flown before today, but he took a short flight just so I could be sure-gone from nest about 5 minutes or so! This is the first time I haven't seen one of the adults nearby.
I've seen Jr. perched on the side of the nest and watched him (or her) climb along a limb, but have not personally witnessed a flight yet.
Female and juvenile perched near the nest.
Single chick now out of the nest and stretching his wings!
Single chick in nest stretching its wings (photo). Female also in nest. Male perched nearby
Only one chick in nest :( Playing peekaboo this morning. Every time I'd try to take a photo, it would duck down. I turned to go back to the car and would look back and it's stretching it's wings. Mom and dad will leave the nest for a bit, but won't go very far.
The birds are a little shy this weekend. Adults leaving nest. F returns, one chick clearly visible (photo)
Mom and Dad finally decided to show the babies off! There are at least 2 not sure if there is a 3rd one this year or not.
Pair sat on or near nest. Chicks now visible, can't see how many. Female appears to be shading the chicks from the sun.
"May 19 - Female sat off to the side of nest, then later settled low.
May 20 - Female high on nest, calling. Possible chicks present?"
Not a lot going on today, papa's got egg duty, but Ma's not far away.
New picture not a great one, but a juvenile bald eagle got too close to the nest and is being chased away
The nest is coming along pretty good, latest photo March 29
I can't be sure, but I think this is a pair that nested in a tree about 50 ft. away last year. That tree was the only one in the whole group of trees that went down during Hurricane Irene last year. The first photo was on March 11 and the second one today, March 16.
