I got home about an hour ago to discover we have a video stream. Image is small, but it is an image. Black bag still there but a bit to the back side. Maybe won't cause problems with the eggs if it stays there, but still foresee problems for chicks.

EnMax has this posted above the image so hopefully we will have a larger view soon.

While we troubleshoot the technical issues we're experiencing with our high quality video stream we have temporarily enabled this video of the Osprey nest. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


It looks like Mom has two eggs. The size of the image (which I doubled) and the shadows make it difficult to be sure. Of course, do not know when the second was laid, but I'm guessing yesterday afternoon/evening

Two eggs! Grin Oh my Oh My - I totally missed the fact that there was one egg. :oops: I do check in from time to time - but oops.... :oops:

I think I'll go back and read more slowly and see when the first one appeared so I can update my master list. Cool

And thanks for all the observations here - this is an interesting nest to watch - and to read about! Smile

I just got back to watching - had chores to do. The plastic bag is gone! Did any one see what happened? Please post, pictures too if you have them.

Did some checking. EnMax did retrieve the bag. Wouldn't you know it was while I was outside doing garden chores!

Another interesting event occurred yesterday evening on CBC radio regarding the nest and the bag

if you want to listen to it.

Hi BET wave I've just been reading through these pages....ClappingClappinggreat job of documenting their behaviour and the pics are fabulous....very informative.

I did not see the plastic bag leave the nest but I can say I am very happy to see it gone Nodding yes.

eta.....just read your comment on the plastic bag Left thumb up Thank you Enmax, now how'd they do that Puzzled:question:

11:39am
The parent (sorry, don't know which one) appeared to be defending the nest. The wings were outstretched and darting about.

Adult stayed standing for a bit, flew off then an adult observed flying into the nest.

EnMax uses one of their Cherry Pickers to reach the nest. They use one every year when they band the chicks.

That was Mom and she actually was "flirting/inviting" Dad to come play - :oops: well indulge in some sex would be more accurate

If there is to be a third egg, it is due today or at the latest tomorrow.
