beautiful juvenile first on the nest with a fish. This osprey took off with fish aerodynamically positioned in her talons and circled around before landing on a telephone pole. Please see the picture. No other ospreys were visible.

Three ospreys today. One in the nest possibly juvie, 2 others first on telephone wires, then perched in trees in the same vicinity to each other. One adult with a fish. Observed from the water as before.

This morning observed an adult with a fish in his talons fly from the LI Sound and land in the nest. Two adults observed in the nest, couldn't see chicks as my angle of observation didn't allow.

Observed from a boat in Northport Bay. One chick in the nest sighted with my binoculars. As it was low tide we couldn't get very close. One adult was perched on top of a telephone pole. Second adult seen flying in the area.
