Does anyone know the approximate distance from the shoreline below the nest to the sandbar?



Hi Terry. I'm not good with distances but here's a shot from the opposite side of the river that I took last summer. It's not as far as it looks from the cam.

The chick stops eating and both stare at something passing overhead.

Osprey flies from left to right up the river and headed for the sandbar. It could be one of ours -- or maybe not :dunno:

Thanks, Judy! I figured it wasn't too far or we'd not see the birds out there at all.

6:36pm still just 2 on the nest and 1 is still eating.


OUT


I came for the eagles, and stayed for the friends I made

6:45 pm
The third chick arrives from the upper right screen and gracefully landed at the 10:00 corner.
The one at 1:00 is still eating and the other one is standing at mid nest.

The chicks are suddenly flared out and chittering at something overhead. They calm down almost instantly.

The chick at 1:00 has finally finished eating and wanders to mid nest.
The three are now lined up to look out to the river.

There must be a piece of fish and another chick picks it up and mantles over it. Yes he does have it and begins eating.

Now the chick that had the fish previously moves to 4:00 and is watching him eat.

8:01pm......There is one chick on the rim of the nest. It is grooming itself and seems quite content to be there.

8:38pm..................Still 3 chicks in the nest and the one at the lower left corner seems to be eating..........but not for long. It moved away from that area and I don't see any food left. If Mom brought in a fish it must have been a small one.

8:43pm.............They are all just standing there as if waiting for a food delivery.

Hi Jean,

When I noticed the fish I saw it was small so I wonder if one of the 'lets caught it or mom brought it in.
