11:24am..........I see the 3rd chick has arrived. The chick at 5 is eating his fish while the other two just hang around, sneaking the occasional peek.

12:00 pm

It looks like one of the chicks might have some damaged feathers at the back.

:hello:
Hi Jean,

I have noticed this happen fairly frequently, ie, Big Sis flies in and then #2 feels comfortable enough to resume eating her fish. At 11 :25 am Big Sis (#1) mantled and gestured towards the trees in the shoreline after she returned to the nest.

Then she left the nest and an unsuccessful steal attempt is made by our hungry lad. Will he ever get a meal today? The food has moved over to 9 and we get another good look at the nice pink flesh.

12:00 pm Our hungry one flies out but is back within the minute, he is still biding his time.

Great s'cap, Christine (I too, loved that cute one earlier). Our osprey's feathers were ruffled after the earlier fish fight and look a mess now. I hope that they are just out of place, he is certainly hungry enough to try for the fish today and of course doesn't stand much chance. Still, it is a skill he will need to be successful later on I guess.

12:10 pm The fish is at 5 now. Looks like an osprey just left from the tree or pole on the left side of the nest. Yes, Big Sis has circled round, I guess, and landed at 3. Junior leaves.

12:12 pm And returns to the river side of the nest , both non-eaters jockey for space. Lucky gal eats on.

12:15 pm Junior lies down at 12, must be hot and needs some nourishment and moisture. I hope he gets the next fish. fingers crossedFish:

12:18 pm He moved closer to the fish and stands at 6 now. And leaves again.
