One very empty nest at the moment. I wonder if they will spend another night in the trees ?

Hi Jean,

At 8:44 pm the last two chicks flew off the nest and I doubt that they will return before morning, they are growing up after all.

Yes, that was interesting to learn that experienced osprey make 10-30 attempts before success, no wonder Gerard saw that young osprey try 50 or more times. It certainly is not an easy life. We have at least two very strong and feisty individuals here though, with very good genes and a healthy start in life. They will need good luck too like all wildlife does.

Good morning, Judy!

Thanks for the pictures and observations on the adult fly-overs yesterday evening, BET and J D. I must admit that without sound, I do sometimes have trouble telling fish-calling from alarm calling.

I've also read accounts of how hard it is for osprey to catch fish when they first start learning, Jean - and it does amaze me how fast they need to learn, because unlike young eagles, they don't have other options.

And thanks for stopping by, Terry - great to have more eyes on this nest right now!

5:55 am
Beginning to get light - and nest is still empty.

Still empty but I'm sure once they decide it's time for breakfast they'll all arrive and wait for Mom to deliver it.

The third chick arrived.

The chick with the fish moves to the 8:00 area to eat.

There must be two fish because the chick at the 5:00 corner is also eating. I wonder if he brought his own or did the fish break in two during the scuffle ??? The fish Mom brought in wasn't very big so I am almost sure he brought his own.
BET, I don't know if you're running video this early but if you are could you check to see if two fish were brought in this morning ? thanks.
