Dad left the nest. Mom never did get up off the eggs while he was home.
By the way it appears that most of the black plastic is gone today. Left thumb up

Glad the cam is up again. It's been a quiet morning when I have been watching. Once Dad flew low and harassed one of the Canada's that was standing on the beach area. The Canada wasn't fazed by him, just stayed right where he was.

Dad has been on the nest several times while Mom stayed put on the eggs. He fussed around with the sticks. Finally took off, Mom followed leaving the eggs to the sunshine. Within a minute one of the pair was back on the nest settling in. No idea which one

Mom landed to relieve Dad on nest duty (I only know who was who due to the following behavior)

I really do not know the meaning of this "claiming" (as I call it ) Dad did this last year and I have noted him doing it several different times this past week. He flies up and than lands on the back of cooperative Mom. He does not try to mate, but just stands on her back, trying to keep his balance. Mom tends to move a bit and Dad's feet do the slip and slide on her back. Sometimes looks like he is mimicing a cowboy on a bucking bronco.Green LOL

BET, male ospreys continue mating behavior a week or so after the last egg, if there is another egg he wants to be sure it would be fertile. The female is giving him notice...no more eggs...very normal. If the female isn't lifting her tail, he gets the message.

Mom is incubating the eggs while scouting the area outside the nest.
I like it when they face the camera making it so much easier to tell who's who.

6:38 am
She's up for a quick egg roll but not standing high enough to see all the eggs.

Between 12:15 and 12:32 , the invader Osprey made numerous passes at the nest. Four or 5 were in camera range. The rest were, judging by our pair's heads right overhead. The one image limit is making it hard to decide what to post. I will post 6 or 7 images
