no sign the chick at 7oclock spot has a fish.


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

Sharon/Arky Thank You

Thank you for sharing those marvelous on site photos. I don't know which would be my favorite if i had to chose. Maybe the one of Mom looking down at you from her tree perch.

I could not fail but notice in your over head flight photos of our chicks - They are FAT - Mom may be a single parent now, but there is no doubt that she is succeeding. And though Dad is not standing down on the bar demonstrating fishing techniques, the chicks have gotten the idea. I have noted them down there quite a few times in the last few days.

Right now 4:06pm all three are on the nest eating!

I haven't had time yet to review my recording from when I was gone, but it looks like you all have everything covered

4:21pm the chick from 12oclock spot is over at 11 and is not eating now. I see it calling out now and then

the others are still eating.

4:30pm was AFK: looks like the chick that moved over from 12 to 11 spot has taken over eating the fish that 11oclock was eating.

chick who was at 11 is now moved to 10ocock spot ...
chick at 7oclock spot still eating

4:34pm Kayakers going by on this side of the sandbar

Extraordinary s'caps BET! They are very exciting to look at -- I am amazed that they haul such large fish up out of the water and through the air to the nest (and how tall is that pole,anyway?).

Bravo I Don't care that I'm blowing our own horn -- we do awesome work here on the threads at HWF. Give yourselves a round of applause!! Clapping Clapping

4:45pm chick at 11oclock spot has moved over to the 1oclock corner and surveys his world

Good Evening!

Sharon.....Your pictures (and those of other observers along with commentary) are the icing on the cake! To see them like that just shows how healthy they are. Thank you for taking the time to not only photograph but figure out how to post here. Please post often!

Judy(s), Terry, Bev, BE (fantastic capture of giant fish!), and all the others posting here (I only looked back one page) - extraordinary! To see all the osprey on the nest is exceptional - what an impressive moment each post presents. Thank you!

I quite agree, Terry, And it's especially wonderful when we can see something happen from two perspectives - as with arkyquest and BET's pictures of the arrival of the giant fish.
