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??

OspreyLvr

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.

Becky

I've seen fish delivered this week.

Sami

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

Male just brought a fish in for the female!

Sami

Thanks for the report on the fish dinner!

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."

Sami

wind up to 12mph

cam frozen for the past 10 minutes.

FYI

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.

Sami

It is day 40 for the eggs

Hope that Rachel is right and we will at least have ONE chick in the nest today!!
