I was watching today too and mom was on very high alert.She kept flying away from the nest and back.She did this for quite sometime,shouting etc.2 of the chicks were also very alert,but one chick was too interested in a fish.2 chicks took off,mom kept flying on and off of the nest shouting,another osprey??? NO!! There was an immature bald eagle on the guardrail of the dam.It was there for about 10 minutes!!!Then it finally flew away.Right after it flew away the last chick on the nest took off!!!

I know it was a grand sight to see six ospreys flying over at one time.
I just saw one of the chicks enjoying a hot meal from Oliveea.
I think it's neat how, after eating, they clean their beaks by rubbing them on some sticks.


Thanks for posting some pics. I keep on checking back to see if I spot one back in the nest, been awhile since I saw one. I can't believe how much they have grown since flying the coupe. Thanks for setting the camera up.


All three fledglings on the nest a few minutes ago....two eating, one pruning. After one finished supping and left, the pruner tried to get some food but was run off. Standing by himself/herself looking a tad sad.
The Davenport eaglets seem better at sharing. Although not around much anymore.


I really enjoy your commentary and updates. I've been very impressed with these Osprey parents and the way they seem to know when to bring food, or help with the feeding or allow the youngsters to try and do it themselves. But, I have to agree with Joanna. One of the youngsters seems to be pushier than the others and will even take the fish from its parents when the parent is trying to dole out portions. I agree, too, that the Decorah eagles did seem better at sharing. :)


I also agree, these guys need to learn to fight to survive, while the eagles are at the top of the food chain!! So fun watching all of them from the time they hatched to now :)

I know most of us want them to all have manner and share,but the sad part is if they are too sharing,they lose. They have to learn to catch fish and then fight off any nest mates that want to take it away. Less we forget, these young guys are prey to the bald eagles and owls as a food and also an eagle will steal what every they catch. Eagles are bad about stealing food from any where they can find it. So don't look at the fighting over food and keeping it all to themselves as bad.
It all boils down to survival and that is the end results we want for these beautiful birds. So when Oscar bring in a fish, get in there and duke it out.LOL

Facinating to watch the learning stages. All too soon the youngens will be on their own and we will be wondering how they are doing. When and where will they migrate? Will they return to the area to build their own nests?
