There may be another chick, but time will have to tell as they get bigger. There is one, for sure.

Mating activity today and an interloper was trying to cause trouble. The male in the nest took off after it, chased it off and encountered an eagle while doing so. All is well, however, since the eagle landed in a nearby tree and the male osprey went back to the nest. I'm so glad they finally put up a platform for this pair instead of constantly tearing down their nesting material!!
