| Technical issues »
We are still hoping to see a chick. This time last year, we had 3 chicks that were almost 2 weeks old. At this point, all we can do is keep watching and hope for the best.

I thought that if one actually hatched on time it would not be until @5/21...?

beautiful morning! osprey diligently incubating the eggs for over an hour.
Still gusty conditions. Osprey facing to the left, keeping a watchful eye on the surrounding area.
Has anyone seen fish delivery by either ospreys??

Sami, I can only pop in a few times a day but I haven't seen a fish delivery at all this season. I have seen many times where both were on the nest but zero fish.

I've seen fish delivered this week.

Thanks OspreyLvr and Becky, too!

.......given the haphazard way these two have tended to the eggs I would be amazed if even one of them hatched......having said that, it would be a joyous sight to see a baby in this nest again this year......I'm not getting my hopes up, however

Day 36...as per blog on the LOL site:
keep an eye out for:
" The eggs being turned more often by the parents during incubation
The female bird head tilting and listening to the chicks inside the eggs calling
The eggs themselves moving independently- not touched by the parents
The appearance of tiny holes or cracks in the eggs as they start to hatch."

wind up to 12mph
cam frozen for the past 10 minutes.

IF we have a hatch:
chick would be fully grown at 6 weeks
fledges around 8 to 10 weeks...somtimes hang around a bit longer.
Sad beginnings at this nest, but am still optimistic.
May 21, 2014 at 01:53 PM
It is day 40 for the eggs
Hope that Rachel is right and we will at least have ONE chick in the nest today!!
