Just had a brief look at the eggs, and all three still looked like eggs. It looked as if she did a bit of gentle moving of them before settling back down.

I don't track enough osprey nests to have reliable statistics, but I have an impression that the first egg most often hatches on day 38 or 39 on most of the North American nests with three eggs. Though there are always exceptions. Wink

edited to add uncropped pictures - sorry.

I'll have to get off my computer now, againMad, so the cable guys can work on the problem...I'll check back as soon as I can, I just love hatches!!! Glad your keeping a close watchClapping

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 2010

WEATHER: Light rain all day. High 12C

7:40 am
The eggs were alone when I turned on the cam then Mom came in almost instantly.
I'm really hoping the wet cold spring weather hasn't affected the outcome for these eggs. Help emo

Mom arrived again and went into incubating position. She's definitely watching the area all around her. She's not relaxed at all.

I saw both adults on the nest, and think there may have been a swap. Not sure, though. The eggs looked about the same as in Judy's pic from an hour earlier.

9:30 am
Adult up for a brief stretch (or possibly a swap - I don't watch enough to know who is who). No obvious change in the eggs.

One of the adults (guessing Dad) either came in with a large stick or felt a need to rearrange a large stick once he arrived. I think he brought it but am not sure - I was working when I noticed motion on the cam out of the corner of my eye.

I covered the cam briefly opening this window, and when it was visible only one adult was there - from the positioning, I think it was the new arrival. He took over incubation - and I think it is Dad because he does look smaller in the nest.

No obvious change in the eggs, and he didn't turn them as he settled in. I haven't noticed either of them looking underneath much, so it may be that the first egg isn't going to hatch until tomorrow or Friday. I'm thinking it was quite cool here initially, which has seemed to slow things down a bit on other nests.

Dad arrived with a chunk of fish.
Mom didn't bother getting up off the eggs so Dad flew off with the fish. (unusual behaviour??)

12:21 pm
Mom finally got up and spent time flapping her wings and looked as if she was calling.
