As of this morning, the 3rd chick has fledged and is flying off and back onto the nest.

07/26/2023 by lost_bird
As of early today the 2nd chick has fledged. One to go!

06/10/2023 by lost_bird
Not sure what happened or when, but there are now just 3 chicks in the nest. They range in size but all are quite active.

06/04/2023 by lost_bird
Looks like all four eggs have now hatched, hooray.

06/01/2023 by lost_bird
A little hard to see, but pretty sure that a 3rd egg has hatched.

05/30/2023 by lost_bird
Two chicks have now hatched, and Dad brought home a surprise toy (see photo).

Saw the first chick in the nest early this morning! Since then the female has been feeding it non-stop.

05/01/2023 by lost_bird
Wow, there are now 4 eggs in the nest.

Saw two eggs in the nest on the webcam!

Both ospreys continue to be present, working on the nest and also mating.

04/02/2023 by lost_bird
Saw two birds on the nest cam this morning so looks like the female has arrived.

03/31/2023 by lost_bird
First sighting of a male on the nest cam this morning. Also observed a 2nd osprey trying to land, but the first bird wouldn't let him. Looks like a competing male and not yet the female of the pair, so will have to see what happens.
