Now that the chicks are bigger, is it possible to widen the focus a bit to be able to see the entire nest? Thanks for your consideration.

It is so amazing to see the instincts of Oliveae---calling for food for the chicks for a long period until Oscar brings some, then when she sees it isn't enough, she calls again. Eieeee, one of them just pooped in my eye, such power. Flapping their wings and hopping up and down like little helicopters...

Mark, I agree with Lin P. Can you zoom the camera out a tad?

Beautiful Oliveea standing watch over her family..

Probably thinking "what happened to my babies..now they are almost grown-ups and will be wanting to leave home"...;)

Come to think of it...the animal kingdom and human kingdom have a lot in common..and often times I think us 'humans' could learn a lot from observing them...


Awesome osprey parents. Thanks for the opportunity to watch, again, Oliveea and Oscar raise another family.


I'm watching the nest at about 5:30 Eastern time from my PC in Washington State. Oh my gosh! It's really being buffetted by wind and rain. Oliveea doesn't seem that concerned but there is such a long stream of violent thunderstorms headed their way! Just took a look at the radar for 28001. I hope they will be fine. Just concerned because they are located on a pole above the dam!!!


It's 5:48 pm Eastern time and it seems the camera is offline. I hope someone from Alcoa can let us know the Osprey family is okay!


Ok. 5:58 pm and everything seems to have calmed down. Camera is online. I worry too much. :)

The osprey family are looking beautiful in the sunrise this morning, with Oliveea feeding each chick their share of breakfast, and Oscar bringing in more sticks and branches.
He just brought in a very long and thin branch that he was having trouble arranging on the nest.
Have a good morning Oscar, Oliveea, and chicks.
Good morning everyone


I get so scared whenever one starts flapping its wings! They are so crowded in that nest. I'm afraid someone may fall out.


Sometimes, I don't know one chick from the other. All of them have become so big. Hard to believe that a month ago, I was worried that the little one would become dehydrated for lack of food. Nice to see all of them thriving.

It's Fri. June 16 and The Question Lady asks:

1. Has anyone measured the effect of the constant movement and loud noise of the location on the birds? Or is it like living high in the trees?

2. Does the nesting box remain untouched by human hands after the birds have flown the coop?

3. Since there has been no audio on the cam for about 2 days and inquiring minds need to know - will the sound be restored?

Thank you!


What has happened to the sound?


Happy Fathers Day Oscar :)

Great job helping raise 3 healthy chicks :)

Can you tell me what the size of this nest is?


Do you know if they fledge at the same time? Seems Olive is getting ready bot the others not so much

obviously like your web site however you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very troublesome to inform the reality on the other hand I'll certainly come again again.
